Current Research

Bernie's current research is devoted to Decision Making in Procurement. In particular, his work explains bidding behavior in governmental procurement auction processes where price and quality-related dimensions are taken into consideration for contract assignment, combining laboratory experiments and game-theoretical structural estimation techniques.

In other research, he has studied procurement inventory decisions under competition, financial performance of public family-controlled firms, and hedonic valuation measures of housing attributes.
