Andrew Kosenko

I am a visiting assistant professor at the Department of Economics at the University of Pittsburgh for the 2018-2019 academic year. I received my PhD in economics from Columbia in May of 2018, advised by Navin Kartik.

I am on the economic job market and will be available for interviews at the 2019 ASSA meetings in Atlanta, GA.

My research interests are in game theory and microeconomic theory, mainly in information economics (strategic communication and information design), as well as the implications of memory and rationality, broadly understood, on strategic behavior. Aside from that I am interested in repeated games, experimental economics, and the neuroscience of learning and memory.
