About Me

My name is Nir Yoseph, I am a Ph.D. student in Business Economics at the Coller School of Management, Tel Aviv University.

I am interested in empirical industrial organization. My research work thus far focuses studying empirically the efficiency of trade in secondary markets for durable goods and in particular the Israeli used car market.

Currently I also teach in the The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and I also worked in the financial industry in Israel for more than 7 years.
