Biographical details

Jonathan Newton works on evolutionary game theory and its application to economic problems. His principal contribution to date has been the incorporation of coalitional behaviour into models of human behaviour in which people do not farsightedly optimize, but make decisions based on rules of thumb. He is currently working on the implications of interconnectedness and adaptive behaviour for financial regulation.
