The Economist as Engineer - Carl Snyder Memorial Lecture

This year's public lecture, The Economist as Engineer, will be held on April 10, 2014 at the University of California, Santa Barbara's Corwin Pavilion at 3:30. Admission is free. Seating is limited.
Alvin Roth is the Craig and Susan McCaw Professor of Economics at Stanford University and the 2012 recipient of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics. Professor Roth specializes in game theory, experimental economics and market design.

How to bring different actors together in the best possible way is a key economic problem. Professor Roth’s research is aimed at improving real world market interaction. Through empirical studies and lab experiments, Roth and his colleagues demonstrated that stability was critical to successful matching methods. Roth used this principal to develop systems for matching doctors with hospitals, school pupils with schools, and organ donors with patients. In his lecture, Professor Roth will explore the fascinating world of applied game theory, encouraging his audience to think differently about everyday markets.

Admission to this event is free but space is limited.
