His research interests lie in Industrial Organisation and more broadly in Applied Microeconomic Theory.
Miguel has been working with Prof. Waddams (University of East Anglia) and Prof. Loomes (University of Warwick) on Project 1 Consumers which focus on the role of consumers in competition and regulation policy, contributing to the analysis of the consumer survey designed at the Centre for Competition Policy. He has also been working with Prof. Loomes studying whether peoples' subjective probabilities for “real life” events (e.g. crime and personal injuries) are sensitive to scale and time variation, and whether peoples' probability judgements about such events are affected when people receive related statistical information.
Miguel has experience in research institutions and also on consultant projects. He worked as a professional economist at the National Economics Prosecutors' Office in Chile (2006 – 2009), undertaking economic analysis of competitive harm in different industries (e.g. energy markets, grocery stores, air passenger transportation) and also merger analysis. He worked as an economist at the Chilean Chamber of Construction (2004 – 2006) where his research focused on: i) productive and labour changes in the construction industry; ii) forecast techniques in the real estate market; iii) the impact of the monetary policy in the housing market.
