Information Economics and Policy

You are here

About: Information economics and policy concerns the production, distribution and use of information and associated policies. Areas of research include; e-commerce, the “bundling” and “valuation” of information goods and services, how information and information technology systems affect an economy and economic decisions, personal and organizational privacy, and the “right to be forgotten”.   Aspects of information economics are related to game theory concepts such as on-line auctions, dynamic automated resource allocation, intelligent agents, and other concepts.

Areas of Strength: We conduct active research in economics of information security, and the public policy aspects of online privacy and the “right to be forgotten”.  We also conduct research at the interface between public policy and regulations, and the interface between public policy and information technology standards.
