Fields of Scholarship and Research Interests

Mathematical economist and Game theorist


Marilda Sotomayor is a Brazilian mathematical economist and game theorist well known for her leading role in the development of methods for the analysis of matching markets, strategic behavior, equilibrium in economic games, and market design. 


Her work on two-sided matching studied the stability of outcomes such as those where workers match with firms, buyers match with sellers, students match with colleges, and individuals match with partners. Her work on auctions provided mechanisms to achieve optimal outcomes.  Her work has facilitated the study of the effects that different rules and constraints generate on the welfare of individuals through the resulting outcomes.
