Our research is aimed at widening our understanding of issues regarding information technology (IT) and its impact on market dynamics. Advanced information technologies have driven consumers to behave differently, and this behavior may have undermined firms’ established business models. New policy schemes are also required to accommodate the environmental changes that have been enabled by such technological development, because policies are able to affect the incentive schemes of market agents in different ways.
In this respect, as a social scientist seeking interdisciplinary research among economics, management, and policy analysis, it is compelling to investigate how IT has changed the pre-existing socio-economic structure and what the outcomes have been.
In particular, various forms and depths of data are analyzed to solve the important research questions with an application of advanced statistical methods and machine learning techniques. By finding robust signals from the rich data, our research is to give a positive impact to consumers, firms, and societies.
