Professor Mazur joined the Krannert School of Management at Purdue University in June 2015. He studies industrial organization ("I.O.") and is chiefly interested in the capital investment decisions of firms that behave strategically. Professor Mazur's work in this area combines reduced-form empirical analysis with recent econometric advances in the estimation of dynamic games to study how legal/policy changes and market frictions influence investment incentives. His interests also extend to the analysis of mergers and acquisitions, complementing his professional experience as a corporate financial analyst specializing in industrial M&A.
