The Consortium of Social Science Associations and SAGE Publishing invite you to a discussion with Alvin Roth, winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize in Economics. Come learn how social science can have real, significant impacts on our everyday lives, often in unexpected ways.
Roth is the Craig and Susan McCaw Professor of Economics at Stanford University, and the George Gund Professor Emeritus of Economics and Business Administration at Harvard University. His fundamental research in market design has revolutionized kidney exchanges, allowing incompatible patient-donor pairs to find compatible kidneys for transplantation. Roth’s matching theories have also been applied to school matching systems used in New York City, Boston, Denver, New Orleans, and several other cities, among other applications.
The event starts at 3 p.m. at 2167 Rayburn House Office Building on Capitol Hill. A reception will follow at 4:30 p.m. Please RSVP by April 13 by clicking here. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
The event is possible with support of Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson, the ranking member of the House of Representatives Science Committee, and SAGE, the parent of Social Science Space.
