Mike Vo


I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Applied Economics and Data Science in the Department of Agricultural & Resource Economics at the University of Connecticut. I earned my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of California, Irvine in June 2023.

Research Interest: Industrial Organization, Antitrust and Competition

I have used mechanism design/information design theory and reinforcement learning to answer questions about return insurance, antitrust issues, and consumer welfare.

In one of my research projects, I employ economic theory and computational experiments utilizing Artificial Intelligence-based pricing algorithms to investigate the impact of search friction on collusion between sellers.
