Dr. Malikov's research interests primarily lie at the intersection of econometrics and productivity analysis with a broad range of empirical applications in microeconomics and industrial organization. His research focuses on the issues pertaining to (i) robust measurement of firm productivity and efficiency, (ii) structural identification of firm-level production functions, (iii) explaining the nexus between firm performance and exporting, foreign investments and cross-peer spillovers, (iv) analysis of firm and market structure in the financial services industry including banks, credit unions and microfinance institutions, (v) hedonic valuation of adverse effects of non-marketable environmental disamenities and climate change, (vi) modeling of production processes in the presence of socially and/or economically undesirable outputs, (vii) panel-data models with (un)observed heterogeneity and selectivity, (viii) semi/nonparametric estimation and testing for data with spatial dependence.
