Staff Profile

Dr Diemo Dietrich

Chair Board of Studies and Co-lead Research & Impact



I am an applied theorist and use ideas primarily from information economics and game theory (e.g. contracts, coordination games, cheap talk), recently also from dynamic macroeconomics (e.g. overlapping generations economies). I have become particularly fascinated by the simple concepts of risk pooling, diversification, and arbitrage.
