Associate Professor

"Game theory is a part of economics that studies behaviour in strategic interactions in economic settings. But these interactions could also shape our preferences and our beliefs. Why would we care about not only what we get from an interaction but also what the other person gets? Why - and how - do we learn about what to believe about the others and how to behave in situations that involve bargaining, bidding in an auction or exerting an effort to win a prize? These are the questions that combine economic, biological and psychological considerations that I try to analyse from both theory and experimental points of view."

"Once you accept economic activity relies on the input of humans you realise you need more than just numbers and pure theory."
