Microeconomic Theory, Game Theory
My main field of research is Game Theory. Game theory is a general mathematical theory to describe and analyze rational human behavior in a society. In particular, I have made contributions to the theory of social norms and stochastic evolutionary game theory. My current research focuses on (i) the theory of repeated games with imperfect private monitoring, (ii) matching and market design, and (iii) experimental and behavioral economics.
