I am a Professor of Economics & Game Theory at the Institute of Economic Research at Kyoto University .
I work on the incorporation of shared intentions and collective agency into evolutionary game theory, and have used evolutionary game theory to tackle problems in bargaining theory, the evolution of preferences and contagion.
Recently, I have taken a particular interest in the Evolutionary Nash Program – the study of relationships between evolution and social choice. I have also been considering models of misspecification. When learning the exact truth is not an option, which ways of learning might confer an evolutionary advantage?
I gained my PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2011, worked at the University of Sydney from 2011-16, then quit and spent 2017 travelling around ~ 年暮れぬ 笠きて草鞋 はきながら.
