Mehdi Shadmehr

I am an associate professor of economics at the University of Calgary Department of Economics. I received my PhD in Economics from the University of Illinois in 2011. I specialize in game theory, political economy, and comparative politics. Methodologically, I am particularly interested in coordination games (super modular and global games), information aggregation, information manipulation, and screening. Substantively, I am particularly interested in regime change and revolution, contentious politics and social movements, leadership, state repression and censorship, and the role of ideology.

In 2017-2018 academic year, I will be at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton.
