Hwang, Sung-Ha

I have been studying economics and mathematics. I finished a Ph. D in economics May 2009 (Dissertation Title: Three Essays on Conflict and Cooperation) under supervision of Samuel Bowles and Peter Skott and am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Department of Mathematics and Statistics University of Massachusetts Amherst under supervision of Luc Rey-Bellet and Markos Katsoulakis

My research interest in economics lies in public economics, behavioral economics, and evolutionary game theory.  Specifically I have been working on the following topics: conflict theory, social preferences, optimal incentives for cooperation in public goods problems, and stochastic evolutionary game theory.  My research area in mathematics includes probability theory and stochastic processes.
