NARRATIVE DESCRIPTIONS OF ORIGINAL INVESTIGATION, TEACHING, AND SERVICE:
In my main line of research I have studied the effects of file sharing on industries producing digital goods, including music, movies, and software. During the last few years I have presented my work on file sharing and intellectual property rights at several conferences and universities. I have been able to published two articles on this topic, and another article is being considered for publication. My work on this area has been widely cited by other scholars. This research is important because file sharing may eventually undermine intellectual property rights for digital goods and result in diminished artistic creations or fewer innovations.
I am also working on other research areas. In collaboration with Professor Stan Liebowitz, I am studying whether internet use reduces television watching. In collaboration with Professor Octavian Carare, I am studying whether new television shows steal viewers fromother television stations, or whether they increase the aggregate number of viewers. In collaboration with Joaquin Zentner, I am studying whether the entry of new theaters steals customers from incumbent theaters or whether it increases aggregate movie attendance.
At UTD I have taught eight courses — including the courses I am teaching the current semester - having had a total of 326 students. All of my courses have been at the graduate level. I have taught several sections of Business Economics (MECO 6303) which is a course designed for MBA and master students, Business Forecasting and Time Series Analysis (MECO 6312) which is also a course designed for MBA and master students, and Econometrics which is a course designed for PhD students.
I have provided service to the profession by acting as a referee for several of the top joumals in Economics, such as the American Economic Review, Berkeley Electronic, CESifo Economic Studies, Information Economics and Policy, Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization, Journal of Political Economy, and Management Science. I have provided service to the School of Management by being part of the faculty recruiting committee in 2005-2006, and by being a member of the Facilities Committee. I have provided service to the University by acting as an Outside Chair.
