This is the home page for Ed Hopkins. Iím a professor in the School of Economics, University of Edinburgh.

My PhD is from the European University Institute, in Florence, Italy, where I returned as a Jean Monnet Fellow in 2001.I have also been a visitor at the University of Pittsburgh, UC Santa Barbara, Caltech, GREQAM and UBC. See my full CV here.


I work in game theory and have three main interests. The first is applying game theory to social issues, with a particular focus on tournament models and their relation to inequality. The second is the theory of learning in games. The third is experimental economics, where I have been involved in some projects testing some predictions of learning theory.
