Yuichiro had to choose three out of his many papers for his dissertation, which he called "Essays on Revision Games." Those papers all concern the difficult problem of analyzing incentives in non-stationary environments.
I earlier blogged about another of his papers, on the design of the market for new Japanese doctors:
Matching Japanese Doctors: problems with the current mechanisms, and suggestions for improvement by Yuichiro Kamada and Fuhito Kojima
Yuichiro 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)
He will be going next year to a postdoc at Yale, after which he'll take up a position at Berkeley-Haas.
Welcome to the club, Yuichiro.
