Simon Grant is a Professor and John C. Harsanyi Chair of Economics. He is also an Elected Fellow of The Econometric Society, The Australian Academy of Social Sciences, and The Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory. Simon’s research interests are broadly in microeconomics, decision theory and game theory. In particular, Simon looks at developing theories of rational decision in the presence of uncertainty and/or unawareness. He has also worked on: applying non-expected utility theory to games, bargaining and social choice; and examining and modelling boundedly rational decision makers with limited awareness in the presence of uncertainty, and applying these models to economic settings involving strategic interactions and social choice. Simon has written on these topics and his research has appeared in leading academic journals including Econometrica, American Economic Review, Journal of Political Economy and Journal of Economic Theory.
