Andrew Kosenko is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the School of Management. He received his PhD in economics from Columbia in 2018, after undergraduate work at New York University.  Prior to coming to Marist, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Pittsburgh, where he taught undergraduate, MBA, and PhD courses.  During the summer of 2019, he was an Associate in Business at the Columbia Business School.  Dr. Kosenko’s research interests are in information economics (strategic communication and the value of information) and behavioral economics (models of memory and learning).  He greatly enjoys reading fiction and biography, and listening to new (so-called “creative”) music that explores the space between composed and improvised musics.  He was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine and grew up in Brooklyn, New York.

Research Interests / Areas of Focus

My research interests are in game theory and microeconomic theory, mainly in information economics (strategic communication and information design), as well as the implications of memory and rationality, broadly understood, on strategic behavior.  Aside from that, I am interested in repeated games, experimental economics, and the neuroscience of learning and memory.
