Prof. Dr. Georg Nöldeke

Georg Nöldeke is professor of economics at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Basel. His research field is microeconomic theory with a focus on game theory and contract theory. He has published on topics like the efficiency of matching markets, the evolution of cooperation, and the incentive properties of option contracts in journals like Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Economic Theory, and the Journal of Theoretical Biology.  Currently, he teaches courses on intermediate microeconomics, decision under uncertainty, insurance economics, and contract theory at the University of Basel.

Georg Nöldeke studied at the University of Bonn, the University of California, Berkeley, and the London School of Economics. Before joining the University of Basel in 2006,  he has held positions as an assistant professor at Princeton University (1992-94), as associate (1994-97) and full (1999-2006) professor at the University of Bonn, and as a full professor at the University of Basel (1997-99). Georg Nöldeke currently serves as a council member of the Game Theory Society. At the University of Basel he has co-founded the Bernoulli Network for the Behavioral Sciences
