Wade Hann-Caruthers

I am a second year graduate student in the social sciences at Caltech. My research is in microeconomic theory, especially mechanism design and social learning.

Short Bio

I got my B.S. in mathematics with a minor in computer science from Caltech. I've also recently gotten into volunteering, and I'm looking for ways to put my skills and spare time to good use!

Write to my gmail (whanncar), or visit me in Baxter, room 247.
