Print Overview
Professor Rogers joined the MEDS faculty at the Kellogg School of Management in 2006 after earning a PhD in Social Sciences from the California Institute of Technology. His research interests lie broadly within microeconomic theory and game theory. Current projects include the modeling of social networking, an analysis of diffusion processes across a population, an experimental test of group opinion formation, a theory of learning in repeated games, and the development of statistical models of strategic behavior.
