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 "natural lab" sports data) 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.  I try to make some positive contributions to the discourse in the twittersphere @d_f_stone.
