About Theory

The Microeconomic Theory group currently includes nine full-time faculty members. Members of this vibrant group have interests that cover a broad range of topics, including mechanism design, game theory, decision theory, political economy, networks, matching, and behavioral economics.

The group’s research advances theory and develops new applications. Its breadth is signified by recent publications on communication in repeated games, large contests, strategic learning in networks, bilateral and multilateral bargaining, among many more.

Activities include a seminar for external speakers, an additional workshop for internal and external speakers, a reading group on current research topics, and two annual theory conferences.
