Daniel F. Stone

Assistant Professor of Economics

I teach classes on microeconomics, game theory, and behavioral economics. Most of my research is on belief formation and choice under uncertainty.  I use both empirical methods (often with data from sports as a "natural lab") and game theoretic formal analysis.  I am especially interested in political media, polarization, persistent disagreement, and inter-personal hostility.
