Research Interests

Professor Baliga uses game theory and the theory of incentives to study fundamental issues in economics and political science. He is writing a book bringing together much of the game-theoretic research in international relations into one over-encompassing framework. He is currently studying how the strategic nature of conflict changes with the technology of war and how the the logic of deterrence changes when there is an attribution problem as in cyberattacks.
