Summary of Consulting Services

I provide economic consulting services in three main areas: Competition Policy and Antitrust Economics; Regulation; and Energy Economics. I often collaborate in this work with Analysis Group, Inc., an economics consulting group with ten offices in North America, including Montreal.

Experience:

(i) Academic:

I have been a Full Professor of Economics at Queen's University, Kingston, since 1996. I taught previously at the University of Toronto, 1980-1990 and held a visiting position at the University of California, Berkeley in 1987-88. From 1993-1994 I held the T.D. McDonald Chair in Industrial Organization at the Competition Bureau, Ottawa.

My research interests are focused on antitrust economics, intellectual property and regulatory economics. I have published articles in all of these areas as well as numerous other publications in scholarly journals and books on Industrial Organization issues. I am the co-author (with Dr. Jeffery Church) of a major textbook: Industrial Organization: a Strategic Approach (McGraw-Hill-Irwin, 1999).

I teach graduate and undergraduate courses in Industrial Organization and Regulation and have lectured widely on antitrust topics.
