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 am a member of the MD4SG Online Labor Markets + Bias, Discrimination, and Fairness working group. I am also always excited about opportunities to volunteer in my local community!

Write to my gmail (whanncar), or visit me in Baxter, room 218.

Cool young scholars

Jessie Finocchiaro had a super awesome idea, so I am (with her permission) playing copycat. As I meet cool young scholars (especially other graduate students) whose work I'm really excited to draw others' attention to, I will add them to my cool young scholars page with a few keywords related to their research and anything that I think is particularly exciting about what they are doing.
