My main research interest is in epistemic game theory – a recent discipline which investigates how people reason before they make decisions. It focuses especially on situations of strategic interaction, in which several decision makers are involved. It has many applications to economics and other social sciences.
I have written two books so far.
Epistemic Game Theory: Reasoning and Choice
Published at Cambridge University Press in June 2012.
This is a textbook on epistemic game theory – the first in its kind – which I have written for bachelor students, master students and PhD students at universities. It can be used as a textbook for a general course in game theory, or for a more specialized course in epistemic game theory. The book is full of examples and exercises based on situations from everyday life.
Rationality in Extensive Form Games
Published at Kluwer Academic Publishers, Theory and Decision Library, in 2001.
This book is a monograph on the theory of dynamic games. It explores various concepts that have been proposed in the literature for dynamic games, and investigates the relationships between these.
Since 1997 I have given the following courses at universities:
Various game theory courses, at bachelor, master and PhD level
Course in epistemic game theory, for master and PhD students.
Mathematics for first year economics and international business students
Mathematics for second year economics and international business students
Course in managerial decision making, for third year students in economics and international business
Course in statistics for PhD students
Course in Epistemic Game Theory
In 2007, I have developed for the first time a course in epistemic game theory for master students, PhD students and researchers, which I have given at various universities across Europe. Here is an overview of the places where I have given this course until now:
2013: Mini-course at University of Luxemburg
2013: Full course at Maastricht University (Netherlands)
2012: Mini-course at Erasmus University Rotterdam (Netherlands)
2011: Mini-course during Decisions, Games and Logic Workshop at Maastricht (Netherlands)
2011: Full course at Maastricht University (Netherlands)
2010: Full course at Maastricht University (Netherlands)
2009: Mini-course at University of Aarhus (Denmark)
2008: Mini-course at University of Lausanne (Switzerland)
2008: Six-week course at University of Amsterdam (Netherlands)
2007: Mini-course at Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (Spain)
2007: Mini-course at Maastricht University (Netherlands)
2007: Mini-course at Max-Planck Institute Jena (Germany)
EPICENTER: Our research group in Epistemic Game Theory
Some years ago, I have founded a research group on epistemic game theory at Maastricht University, together with my colleagues Christian Bach and Elias Tsakas. The research group is called EPICENTER. We have developed a lot of activities already, such as a reading group on epistemic game theory, joint research projects, andthe organization of mini-courses on various topics.

Supervision of PhD students
I have supervised (or am supervising) the following PhD students:
2014 – present: Bilge Baser (Mimar Sinan University of Fine Arts, Istanbul)
She will work on the software implementation of recursive procedures in epistemic game theory.
Bilge will do a double degree in Istanbul and Maastricht.
2013 – present: Christian Nauerz.
He works on models of step-by-step reasoning procedures in epistemic game theory.
2011 – present: Angie Mounir.
She works on models of bounded and approximate rationality in epistemic game theory.
2008 – 2010: Christian W. Bach.
