29 September, 2021

Ludmila Matysková, one of our 2018 PhD in Economics graduates, has just begun her third year at the Institute for Microeconomics at the University of Bonn. Why did she choose Game Theory as her field of study and what aspects of her PhD studies have influenced her the most?  Read the latest interview published on the CERGE-EI blog.

"I am glad that I did not miss the opportunity to gain expertise from top researchers including Filip Matějka and Jakub Steiner. (...) I have always liked playing games and strategizing. Who doesn’t like to play games, right? And if you can do it and get paid for it ☺…so when I learned about the existence of game theory during my Bachelor’s, I got hooked, and so far, I have not got unhooked. All my theses, from Bachelor to PhD, had something to do with game theory," said Ludmila Matysková.
