Postdoctoral Researcher in Economics

Teemu Pekkarinen

I am a postdoctoral researcher in microeconomic theory. My research interests are in information economics and game theory. I work on questions related to auctions and mechanism design.

Currently, I am continuing my research at the MIT Department of Economics. From Fall 2024 onwards, I will be part of the Bonn Economic Theory Group.
