Juan Camilo is a Professor of Economics at the University of the Andes in Bogotá, Colombia. The central interest of his work is the analysis and design of institutions that promote cooperation between individuals and help solve social dilemmas in the most efficient, equitable, democratic and sustainable way possible. His research combines game theory, experimental economic techniques, and environmental valuation to explore the rationality of people’s behavior and how formal and informal institutions determine behaviors and decisions that affect one’s own well-being as well as that of others.
