Weekly Seminar: Gregory Leo, “Taking Turns” (Sep 22, 2016)

gregoryleoWe would like to announce that Gregory Leo will be giving the first of our fall 2016 weekly seminar series, on September 22, 2016. He will be discussing his paper, “Taking Turns”.

Gregory Leo uses game theory and experimental methods to study economic problems. Two of his main research projects include studying the coordination dilemmas that arise when the effort of a few people can benefit many and how to efficiently match people into teams or groups in various environments. Gregory joined the faculty at Vanderbilt university in 2015 after earning his PhD from the University of California Santa Barbara.

The talk will be held at the NYU Economics department, in room 517. If you have any questions regarding this talk, or any in our series, please email cess@nyu.edu.
