Research Activities

Dr. Malikov’s research interests primarily lie at the intersection of econometrics (quantitative/statistical methods) and production economics. His current research focuses on the issues pertaining to (i) productivity and efficiency analysis, (ii) modeling of production processes in the presence of socially and economically undesirable outputs such as pollution, (iii) valuation of adverse effects of non-marketable environmental disamenities, (iv) estimation of the climate change effects on agriculture, (v) analysis of structure of the financial services industry (including banks, credit unions and microfinance institutions) and (vi) semi/nonparametric estimation and testing techniques for longitudinal data with spatial dependence.
