Recent Thoughts

I am conducting research on bounded rationality such as level-k model. Previously I was able to explain the truth bias in deceptive communication. In the field of disability studies, I am performing economic analysis of issues such as the provision of rational accommodation, basic income, and employment of the people with disability. I am examining institutions and norms in areas that are distinguished from the habits. Adopting a game theory, I am investigating whether people can recognize that others are following the same norms, and explanations for the phenomenon of norms functioning in ways that go beyond the intentions of the people who established them.
