Over the summer, Professor Marco Battaglini was elected as an Economic Theory Fellow by the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory (SAET). Three fellows were chosen by SAET this year.
"Economic Theory Fellows are selected for their scientific excellence, originality, and leadership; high ethical standards; and scholarly and creative achievement. The contributions of fellows may exist in many areas of theoretical economics, including pure and applied research, and government service. The primary qualification for fellowship is to have substantially advanced economic theory. This achievement may be evidenced by an outstanding publication record; strong editorial board service; honorary, scientific, educational and professional achievements, or through the training of graduate students."
Marco Battaglini is the Edward H. Meyer Professor of Economics at Cornell University. He is an elected fellow of the Econometric Society and was awarded the Carlo Alberto Medal in 2009. Battaglini also hosts the annual Cornell Political Economy Conference (C-PEC). He currently teaches ECON 4907: The Economics of Asymmetric Information and Contracts and ECON 7385: Economics and Politics.
