Current interest

I am mostly concerned with game theoretical models of the evolution of social norms and institutions. My research in these field can be grouped into the following areas:

• Evolutionary Game Theory. In this area I have written a few papers on the emergence of property rights and problem of social inequality (Ref. 9 and 10). I have also investigated the emergence of cooperation in repeated Trust Games using finite automata with complexity costs (Ref. 12).

• Social preferences. In this area I’ve worked mostly on reciprocity models based on “psychological game theory”. I’ve studied the problem of equilibrium selection in psychological games (Ref. 11) and I’m currently working on a definition of reciprocal altruism (Ref. 13). I’ve also presented a small refinement of the notion of “guilt aversion”(Ref. 7)
