Alexander Galetovic

Alexander Galetovic is an expert in the economics of industries. His research on energy and infrastructure has been published in leading academic journals and has influenced policy in many countries. Together with Eduardo Engel and Ronald Fischer, Galetovic invented the least-present-of-revenue auction, which is routinely used by governments to procure infrastructure. His recent research on standard essential patents in high technology industries like mobile phones, semiconductors, and autonomous vehicles shows that strong intellectual property rights foster fast technological progress. 

Galetovic is a Senior Fellow at the Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez, Chile; a Research Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, and a Research Associate, at the Interuniversity Research Center of Public Economics, Universities of Padua, Verona, and Venice (CRIEP). He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Princeton.
