Prof. Angel Hernando-Veciana has held academic positions in Universidad de Alicante (assistant professor), Universidad Carlos III de Madrid (assistant and associate professor) and University College London (funded by a Marie Curie postdoc from the European Commission).
His work on mechanism design, information economics and auction theory has been published in the top journals of economic theory: Journal of Economic Theory, Theoretical Economics, Games and Economic Behavior and Economics Letters.
His work has contributed to the understanding of the implications of bidders’ asymmetries in auctions, competition among auctioneers, and more recently to the design of interest benchmarks like the LIBOR and mechanisms to allocate refugees.
