Nizar's current research interests are in public economics and the economics of networks. Public economics is one of the main areas of economics and analyses government economic intervention such as the use of taxes, expenditures, and regulations. The economics of networks, which focuses on modelling and understanding varied economic interactions, has recently become one of the most active and dynamic fields in economics. It has the potential for important and lasting policy implications. Nizar also worked on no-arbitrage conditions and short-selling in asset  markets.
