Max Rosenthal joined the School of Economics at Georgia Tech as an Assistant Professor in August 2019.  His research mostly lies in the area of microeconomic theory, with primary emphases on contract theory and mechanism design and a secondary concentration in behavioral economics.  In particular, Max has recently studied the incorporation of consumer choice data into the design and pricing of complex products.  Elsewhere, he has investigated risk taking in moral hazard problems by individuals with heterogeneous risk preferences, with applications to employment contracting and executive compensation.  More broadly, Max’s work is concerned with the implications of uncertainty for the design of incentives and the allocation of goods.

Before coming to Georgia Tech, Max completed his doctoral studies in Economics at the University of Arizona.
