Dr Ansgar Wohlschlegel
Before joining the University of Portsmouth, I held academic positions at the University of Bonn and RWTH Aachen University, and worked for a large auditing firm.
My main field of research is Law & Economics, but I also work occasionally on topics in Industrial Organization or Public Economics. My work includes research questions such as:
- How do car drivers react to nonlinear speeding sanctions?
- Can we prevent the next financial crises by regulating bankers’ compensation?
- When selling something on ebay, should I choose an auction or sell it at a fixed price?
- What are the consequences of corruption for an economy?
I am also interested in supervising Ph.D. theses in these fields of research, especially on the following topics:
- Litigation and settlement
- Punishment and deterrence
- Causes and effects of corruption
- Competition policy, especially on abuse of a dominant position
- Law & Economics
- Industrial Organization and Competition Policy
