Eugene Kiselev, a Brandeis Ph.D. student will be presenting his work in the research seminar on November 14th.   His presentation will be on “Bribe-Taking and Bureaucratic Competition: A Search Cost Model of Corruption.”   He is on the job market this year and will be attending the American Economic Association Meetings in San Diego in January.


Eugene Kiselev’s primary field of research is the economics of corruption in the former Soviet Union.  Coming from a family of first-generation Russian immigrants, the personal experiences of his family and friends triggered his interest in the field.  His recent papers examine the industrial organization of corruption and how the structure of bureaucracy affects rent-seeking behavior, and explore the relationship between corruption and lobbying efforts by business associations.  His work has most recently been presented at the Higher School of Economics Summer School on Institutional Analysis, and the Global Studies Conference hosted by Moscow State University.
