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

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

My Pitt email is "ank two one two at pitt dot edu" (formatted in the obvious way, and with the words "one" and "two" replaced with digits).
