The Virginia Tech College of Science opens its J. Mark Sowers Distinguished Lecture Series for the fall 2019 semester with Professor Colin Camerer presenting "Game Theory in the Laboratory, Field and in the Brain" on Thursday, September 12, 2019 inside the Graduate Life Center Auditorium on the campus of Virginia Tech.

Colin Camerer is the Robert Kirby Professor of Behavioral Economics, the T&C Chen Center for Social and Decision Neuroscience leadership chair, and director of the T&C Chen Center for Social and Decision Neuroscience at Caltech. He is considered a pioneer in behavioral economics and neuroeconomics, with his research focusing on how psychological forces and their deeper neuroscientific foundations influence economic decisions involving individuals and markets.

He is a past president of the Society for Neuroeconomics, serving 2005 to 2006; was named a MacArthur Fellow in 2013; and is author of the book "Behavioral Game Theory: Experiments in Strategic Interaction".

The series is funded by J. Mark Sowers, a Richmond, Virginia-based businessman and longtime supporter of the College of Science. The lecture series is designed to serve as a forum to exchange new and innovative ideas in scientific fields, including physics, nanotechnology, and neuroscience. Of the lecture series, Sowers previously has said, “I hope that people will be inspired by the lecture series and to bring attention to Virginia Tech and its brilliant researchers for the advancement of fundamental physics.”

All talks are free and open to the public.
