I study microeconomic theory and behavioral economics. Recently, I have been working on the implications of multi-agent learning in various settings with rational or behavioral learners.

I was a Teaching Fellow for the following classes.

Economics 1011A: Intermediate Microeconomics - Advanced
Economics 1011A is similar to Economics 1010A, but more mathematical and covers more material. The course teaches the basic tools of economics and their applications to a wide range of human behavior.
[syllabus]   [section notes]   [teaching evaluations]

Economics 2010A: Economic Theory
Topics include extensive- and normal-form games, Nash equilibrium, rationalizability, Nash implementation, auctions, bargaining, repeated games, signaling, and forward induction.
