Research Interests: 
My current research investigates conformity – both theoretically and experimentally – in problems of strategic interaction. Specifically, I analyze informal institutions (such as social norms and conventions) that yield uniformity of behavior in games with conformist players. A second research focus aims to enrich the mathematical structure of a game by modeling the individuals’ own perception of the strategic problem. Such a framework is currently being used to explain mis-coordination as the result of individuals being differently aware of some attributes of the strategic environment.
