Yaron Azrieli is an Associate Professor of Economics at The Ohio State University. He joined the department in 2008 after obtaining a Ph.D. degree from Tel-Aviv University. His research areas include Game Theory, Mathematical Economics and Microeconomic Theory. He has published articles in peer reviewed journals such as Games and Economic Behavior, Economic Theory, Journal of Mathematical Economic, Journal of Public Economic Theory and International Journal of Game Theory, and he has presented his work in many international conferences.
Dr. Azrieli’s recently published research focuses on interactive decision making in economies with many agents. In particular, he has shown how categorization can be an efficient way to process information, and why randomized strategies may not be needed to guarantee existence of equilibrium in such environments. He has also analyzed auction markets with a large number of bidders. Dr. Azrieli currently studies the design of efficient voting mechanisms in environments with asymmetric private information, as well as the design of incentive compatible mechanisms for the elicitation of preferences of subjects in experiments.
Since arriving to Ohio State, he has taught the Math-Camp for students entering the graduate program in Economics. He also teaches an advanced course in Mathematical Economics for graduate students. In the undergraduate program he has taught the course Intermediate Microeconomics.
