Eduardo Azevedo defends his Ph.D. dissertation

Defense 3

Eduardo Azevedo (in suit:) having just fended off his committee: from left, Eric Budish, Al Roth, Oliver Hart, Susan Athey, Andrei Shleifer

Eduardo chose the following three of his papers to constitute his dissertation:

A Supply and Demand Framework for Two-Sided Matching Markets (Job Market Paper #1)
with Jacob Leshno
extended abstract published in EC11

Evolutionary Origins of the Endowment Effect - Evidence from Hunter-Gatherers (PDF available upon request)
with Coren ApicellaNicholas Christakis, and James Fowler

I earlier blogged about two of those papers:

A supply and demand model for stable matchings, by Eduardo Azevedo and Jacob Leshno

Market design in a future of trusted smart markets: paper by Eduardo Azevedo and Eric Budish

Eduardo is one of the group of job market candidates I blogged about here: Five Harvard candidates for the Economics job market this year (2011-12)

As I write it isn't clear whether he'll be working next year in Philadelphia, NYC, or Chicago, which will depend on his fiance's jobmarket, which is still to be concluded.

Welcome to the club, Eduardo.
Update: May 11--It's Wharton.
