Bio

Jean-Jacques Herings is professor of Quantitative Microeconomics at the department of Econometrics and Operations Research. His research focuses on five themes: Cooperative game theory, non-cooperative game theory, networks, general equilibrium theory, and equilibrium computation. He has been awarded a great many grants, including the prestigious VICI grant from the NWO. His work was crowned with the Johannes Cornelis Ruigrok Prize in 1997 and the Lionel W. McKenzie Prize in 2008. He has been closely involved with the Game Theory Society, as a member of the Council from early 2011 till 2017, as a fellow from 2017, and as secretary and treasurer from 2014 till 2022. He was also appointed a fellow of the Society for the Advancement of Economic Theory in 2019. He has published in many leading journals in his field of interest, including Econometrica, Journal of Economic Theory, Management Science, and Mathematics of Operations Research.
