Teaching

Fall 2016:

  • Econ 501: Microeconomics I is the first half of the microeconomic theory sequence required of all Rice Economics PhD students covering traditional consumer theory, producer theory and general equilibrium.
  • Econ 470: Market Design is an upper level undergraduate elective targeted at economics major. It studies the design and use of market-based mechanisms to solve problems of economic resource allocation.

Spring 2017:

  • Econ 508: Microeconomics II (co-taught with Hulya Eraslan) is the second half of the microeconomic theory sequence required of all Rice Economics PhD students covering game theory, information economics and mechanism design. I cover the portion corresponding to mechanism design, and include some topics from information economics.

Indicative syllabi are available below.

I don't post the slides and teaching materials here because they're heavily borrowed/ sourced from kind colleagues (Rahul Deb, Eduardo Faingold, Guillaume Haeringer, Jon Levin, George Mailath, Steven Matthews and Al Roth among others, some of whom post their materials publicly), but I'm happy to share privately.
