Research Description

I am a microeconomic theorist who studies peoples behavior in dynamic situations. I am especially interested in the role of stochastically evolving private information. I studied the role of private learning in dynamic contests, strategic experimentation games, and dynamic mechanism design settings. The techniques used are drawn from game theory, optimization and probability theory. If necessary, I develop new techniques and mathematical results.

Applications of my work include revenue maximizing sale of airplane tickets, dynamic ad-word auctions, optimal unemployment benefits, model-free option pricing and competition between mutuals fund managers.
