The UCLA Department of Economics would like to congratulate Tomasz Sadzik for being awarded the Warren C. Scoville Distinguished Teaching Award for best undergraduate teaching in Spring 2019 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, such as quantity it produces, but also on the actions of other agents, such as 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 third time winning this award. Congratulations!
Warren C. Scoville was a faculty member for the UCLA Department of Economics for 28 years before his death in 1969. This award is given quarterly in his name to the ladder faculty member who receives the highest teaching evaluation scores from his or hers course.
