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).
