Kirill Evdokimov

Kirill Evdokimov, a fifth-year graduate student, has been awarded a Lodieska Stockbridge Vaughn Fellowship for 2020-2021. This university-level award is given to only five Rice graduate students each year who have demonstrated outstanding achievement and promise. Kirill studies theoretical models of collective decision-making, focusing on bargaining procedures, legislative institutions, and voting. He examines the effects of decision-making procedures on the equality and efficiency of decisions made in committees and other small groups. Kirill is also interested in the ability of voting institutions to aggregate private knowledge of many voters and in describing the benefits of coordination among voters when the policy proposals are made by politicians with ulterior motives. He has published articles in both Economics Letters and the Annual Review of Economics.
