Research Profile

I work on problems in various areas of microeconomic theory, such as social choice theory, decision theory, and game theory. I am particularly interested in individual and collective decision-making under risk and uncertainty. My work frequently relies on the axiomatic method. That is, one identifies axioms that a system (e.g., a mechanism for making collective decisions) should satisfy and studies their implications (e.g., a particular structure of the mechanism). Multiple areas of mathematics, including convex analysis and linear functional analysis, probability and stochastic processes, linear programming, and complexity theory, have proven useful.
