About

I am a Professor Emeritus in the Vancouver School of Economics and graduate (PhD, 1980) of the University of California at Berkeley. Prior to coming to the VSE, I was a faculty member in the Department of Economics at the University of Toronto (1979-2002) and Dean of Arts at the University of British Columbia (2002-2010).

My research focuses on the economics of intellectual property, competition policy, strategic alliances, licensing, and optimal patent policy. I’ve served on the editorial boards of the American Economic Review, the International Journal of Industrial Organization and the Journal of Economic Literature and have worked with the Competition Bureau and Industry Canada on projects related to Canada’s patent policy and Intellectual Property Enforcement Guidelines.
