Faculty Profile

Dr. Husnain Fateh Ahmad

Assistant Professor

PhD, University of Iowa

My research interests are varied but fall under the umbrella of microeconomics theory and industrial organisation. I have applied behavioural game theory to study the phenomenon of over bidding in first and second price auctions as well as modelled the effects of corruption in the form of bribery on total welfare and efficiency. Since joining LUMS, my interests have expanded, and I have been conducting exploratory work the areas of maternal health and the interaction of identity and economic behaviour.  If there is a common theme to my research, it is that I am interested in identifying and rationalising seemingly irrational behaviour.
