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.
André is a research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods and a PhD candidate at TU Berlin.
He holds a M.Sc. in economics from Humboldt University of Berlin and a B.A. in philosophy and economics from University of Bayreuth.
His research interests lie in the intersection of behavioral economics and market design.
We would like to welcome Emma Heikensten, who will be a visiting CESS from August to December. While visiting us, Emma will continue to develop her research on gender differences in advice, strategic interaction and awards.
Emma holds an M.Sc. degree from London School of Economics and Political Science and a B.S. degree from Lund University School of Economics and Management. She is also a doctoral candidate in Economics, a Fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program, at Harvard University and a Fellow at the Center for Experimental Social Science at NYU. Her research interests are in behavioral and experimental economics with a focus on the economics of gender and inequality. More specifically, she concentrates on gender differences in advice seeking, on strategic interaction and on motivational effects of different degrees on publicness of non-monetary awards. She is also a part of several projects on replication and prediction markets, in which Emma has replicated experimental papers in psychology and behavioral economics.
