Øystein Daljord studies quantitative marketing. His research is empirical and focused on channels and distribution. One strand of the research looks at dynamic effects of fixed price agreements, a pricing institution that has long been common in markets for books. A second strand identifies hidden costs associated with common incentive labor contracts for teams of workers, with implications for hiring and compensation policies. His research has appeared in the Journal of Marketing Research.
Previously, he worked as a senior advisor at the Norwegian Competition Authority, providing economic analysis and litigation support for antitrust cases, including merger control, abuse of dominant positions, and cartel law enforcement.
Daljord earned a PhD in business administration from the Stanford Graduate School of Business and an MSc in economics from the London School of Economics and Political Science. From the University of Oslo, he holds a Cand.Mag., Interdisciplinary degree from the Departments of Economics, History and Philosophy, and Mathematics.
