Professor Kagel’s research interests currently focus on group decision making and learning in strategic interactions between agents, auction design and performance, industrial organization issues, and legislative bargaining. He has won outstanding research awards at the University of Pittsburgh and Ohio State University.
On Thursday, 16th April, 2015, 12:30pm, Marina Agranov, Assistant Professor at Caltech will present a talk on the paper “Commitment and (In)Efficiency: a Bargaining Experiment,” joint with Matt Elliott also from Caltech.
