Biography

Theodore Turocy is a Professor of Economics.  He holds a PhD in Managerial Economics and Decision Science from Northwestern University, and a BS in Computer Science and Economics from the California Institute of Technology.  His research interests are in game theory, with particular focus on behavioural and computational approaches to analysing strategic choice.  Applications he has studied include auctions, the provision of public goods, contests, cost allocation, network formation, and sport.  He is the current principal developer of the Gambit software package for computational analysis in finite games.
