Professor Deb's research interests are in microeconomic theory and game theory, where her primary focus is in the area of repeated games. In a series of three papers, she studies long-term relationships between communities where members interact with each other repeatedly over time, and examines whether it is possible to cooperate and achieve efficient outcomes in such settings. She is also interested in the study of reputation phenomena and has worked on the value of firm reputation, and on how reputation incentives are affected by the presence of multiple stakeholders with diverse preferences. Before her career in academia, Professor Deb she worked as a management consultant in the strategy practice of Accenture in India.
