Wade Hann-Caruthers

I am a (rising) fourth year graduate student in the social sciences at Caltech. My research interests lie primarily in microeconomic theory, especially (robust) mechanism design and social learning. I am especially interested in projects that draw on insights from multiple fields and require cross-disciplinary collaboration.

Short Bio

I got my B.S. in mathematics with a minor in computer science from Caltech.
