I am a sixth year PhD student in economics at Yale, finishing in May 2014. In the autumn I will start working as a lecturer (tenure track) in the University of Queensland in Australia.
My job market paper studied signalling over time with noisy observation of the sender's effort. Noise and time result in rich dynamics. For example, there exist equilibria in which the high-cost type exerts strictly higher effort than the low-cost type.
My previous research was on mathematical models of unawareness, which is the kind of uncertainty under which the decision maker does not know what he does not know, or in other words cannot list all possible outcomes.
I am from Estonia and completed my undergraduate studies at the University of Tartu.
