Philip Brookins

Philip Brookins is a senior research fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods in Bonn, Germany. His research involves the use of game-theoretic techniques to model and characterize behavior in competitive settings, such as contests and tournaments, and the use of experimental methods to test the validity of such models. In particular, he examines how individuals and groups behave in contests when they are information-constrained, e.g., not fully informed as to the number of competitors and/or their characteristics, as well as how they behave when competing as part of a team composed of heterogeneously talented members. Philip joined the Max Planck Institute in 2016 after receiving a doctoral, master’s, and bachelor’s degree in economics and a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Florida State University.
