Guilherme Carmona

Prof Guilherme Carmona

Professor of Economics



After completing his PhD in Economics at the University of Minnesota in 2002, Professor Carmona joined the Faculty of Economics of the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Lisbon (Portugal) as an Assistant Professor, where he obtained his Agregação in 2008. Shortly after, he moved to the Faculty of Economics at the University of Cambridge, first as a Visiting Lecturer during a sabbatical year from Nova, and then as a Lecturer from 2009 until 2012. In 2009 he became a Fellow of King's College (Cambridge). In 2012 he joined the Faculty of Business, Economics and Law at the University of Surrey as a Professor of Economics.

Research interests

Professor Carmona has published several research papers on economic theory and game theory and also a book on the existence and stability of Nash equilibrium (published by World Scientific). Besides economic theory and game theory, his research interests include voting in large elections, dynamic risk sharing, experimental evidence in games, macroeconomic policy, financial and monetary economics.
