Alexander Funcke

Postdoctoral Fellow (2018-present)
PPE Postdoctoral Fellow (2014-2018)
313 Cohen Hall
Research Interests: 
My main research interest is in modeling re-coordination within pure coordination games, stag hunts and for real-world conventions and social norms. I am especially interested in the role of similarity judgments, which leads to an interest in migration, stereotyping and subcultures.
 
I also pursue research into new methods for behavioral experiments involving machine learning; work with "big data" in conjunction with the sharing economy; and I participate in political economy projects, broadly defined.
