Daniel F. Stone

Affiliation: Economics
Associate Professor of Economics

I teach classes on information and uncertainty, game theory, behavioral economics, and microeconomics. Most of my research is on belief formation and choice under uncertainty.  I use both empirical methods (sometimes with data from sports, a great 'natural lab' for behavioral analysis) and game theoretic formal analysis.  I am especially interested in persuasion, communication, and belief updating in general, and, more specifically, political media, polarization, persistent disagreement, and inter-personal hostility (a.k.a. affective polarization).  I'm on twitter (@d_f_stone), perhaps ill-advisedly, but with good intentions (I think).
