Ricardo Fonseca


Welcome to my webpage! I hold a Ph.D. in Economics from Brown University and research applied microeconomic theory, market design, and experimental economics.

In my current main project, I study agents who can exert their option value of waiting and adopt an innovation later (after information is socially revealed) and a principal who can control supply availability to hamper strategic delays and achieve an adoption target faster. 

In another project, I study how a planner concerned with stability can deal with peer preferences in school choice markets that students cannot directly report. 

You can find my CV here.
