Research interests

Research interests include Game Theory, Economies with Clubs, Theory of Incentives, Social Choice, Information Economics, and General Equilibrium. Recently I have developed a strong interest in Financial Markets. Teaching interests include all level courses in Microeconomics, Mathematics for Economists, Game Theory, General Equilibrium, and Theoretical Finance.
