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

I work in game theory and have four 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 behavioural game theory, considering games between players with non-standard preferences and/or bounded rationality. The third is where I started off, evolutionary game theory, which looks at how play out of equilibrium changes over time. The fourth is experimental economics, where I am interested in testing any or all of the above in the lab.
