Dr. Gibbons' primary fields are industrial organization and applied econometrics. His work uses sophisticated statistical analyses to translate economic theory into testable hypotheses. He has produced analysis for a variety of litigation matters, including structural models to assess antitrust damages, models of mortgage delinquencies, forensic analysis of product defects, and local impacts of natural resource damages. He has also developed models for forecasting electricity sales and peak demand for an international utility. His work has been used for class certification, liability determination, and damage calculations.
As an academic, he received several fellowships in recognition of his research abilities. His teaching experience has developed his ability to communicate complex ideas to non-expert audiences and to place them within a broader context.
As a Ph.D. student, his advisor was Suzanne Scotchmer. Charlie would like to thank the NSF-IGERT Politics, Economics, Psychology, and Public Policy program, the UC Berkeley Economics Department, and the Institute for Humane Studies for their generous support of his research.
