Research interestsDr Kotsidis uses tools from traditional and evolutionary game theory to analyse social interactions that (potentially) involve strategic motives. His research focuses on the scope and limitations of models based on methodological individualism in interpreting individual behaviour (human or otherwise) as it is manifested in social settings. It spans along three main directions: how individuals think, what they are motivated by, and what are the implications of their behaviour for collective outcomes. He obtained his PhD in Economics at the University of Nottingham. His doctorate explores some theoretical aspects of (strategic) social behaviour and investigated its empirical manifestations. He also enjoys practising karate, studying the philosophy of mathematics, and reading fantasy literature.
