Curriculum Vitae


My research is concerned with learning in games and its application to the diffusion of innovations, the evolution of social norms and institutions, and the design of decentralized systems of communication and control. I’m also interested in applications of game theory to finance. I am a past-president of the Game Theory Society, a fellow of the British Academy, and a fellow of the Econometric Society.
