João Ramos is a Senior Lecturer at Queen Mary University of London. He researches in the area of Game Theory and specializes in the economics of information - the analysis of how economic agents strategically acquire, use, and share information - with an emphasis on how information asymmetries affect incentives.
His research focuses on how long-term relationships may ameliorate the frictions that conflicting interests cause. That is, how the prospect of a future relationship may align actors’ interests: the parties may be flexible concerning their immediate goals, with a view to a healthy long-term relationship.
Before joining Queen Mary University of London, he was an Assistant Professor of Finance and Business Economics at the Marshall School of Business of the University of Southern California. He received his Ph.D. in Economics in 2016 from New York University.
