Idione Meneghel is an Associate Professor of Economics, whose research interests include game theory, decision theory, auction theory, and the theory of mechanism design. Idione’s research focuses on the existence of equilibrium in games with imperfect information and games with payoffs that lack the usual continuity properties, such as auctions. She has also contributed to the theory of learning and belief formation in an environment in which little information is available to the economic agent and surprises are frequent. Her portfolio of research includes a contribution to the fixed point theory of decomposable sets in non-linear analysis. Idione’s research has appeared in top peer-reviewed journals including Journal of Economic Theory, Theoretical Economics, and Econometrica. Idione has held a Visiting position at the Cowles Foundation for Research in Economics at Yale University and serves on the board of editors for the Journal of Mathematical Economics.
