Asst Prof. Itai Arieli




Itai received his PhD in Mathematics from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and the Center for the Study of Rationality (2010).

During 2010–2012, Itai was a post-doctorate research fellow at the Nuffield College University of Oxford.

Itai Joined the Faculty of Industrial Engineering and Management, Technion in 2012 as an assistant professor.

Itai's research spans aspects of game theory, including equilibrium theory, learning in games, evolutionary game theory, and Bayesian learning in social networks.
