We would like to congratulate Professor Tomasz Sadzik for winning the Scoville Award for best undergraduate teaching in Spring 2018 for his class Econ 106G on Introduction to Game Theory.
Game Theory provides a set of tools to study the interaction of multiple strategic agents. It can be used to analyze situations in which the objective of one agent, say firm A’s profit, depends not only on its own actions, say the quantity it produces, but also on the actions of other agents, say the quantity of A’s competitor. These situations are pervasive in business and economics. In such situations game theory can guide us to improve our actions and help
us to understand observed behavior. This is Tomasz Sadzik’s second time winning this award. Congratulations!
