01 Description of Research

I am a professor of economics at Australian National University and a co-founder of the QuantEcon organization (  My primary research interests are dynamic programming, asset pricing, computational methods, and Markov processes theory.  I have just completed a book with Thomas J. Sargent on economic networks (, which is forthcoming from Cambridge University Press.  I have almost completed a monograph on dynamic programming, also with Tom Sargent.  The book contains a significant amount of new material on dynamic programming, in terms of both theory and applications.
