Biography

I received my PhD from the University of Iowa in 1988. I worked at State University of New York at Buffalo and Florida International University between 1988 and 2008 as an assistant, associate and full professor before joining Deakin University in 2008. I work mainly in microeconomic theory (especially game theory); I also work in experimental economics. I published papers at journals such as Quarterly Journal of Economics, Journal of Economic Theory, International Economic Review, Journal of Public Economics, Games and Economic Behavior, Journal of Economic Dynamics and Control and so on.
