Juan Carlos (JC) Carbajal is an Associate Professor with the School of Economics at UNSW Sydney, having joined UNSW in 2013 after five years at the University of Queensland. He did his BA in Economics at Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú, in Lima, Peru, and his PhD in Economics at Washington University in St. Louis. His research interests include game theory, mechanism and auction design, behavioral economic theory, and political economy. His work focuses on using economic theory to study broad, deep questions of institutional design, including allocation mechanisms and political institutions. More recently, he has started encoding models of bounded rationality in the language of Bayesian networks to explore decision making under misspecified models.
