Omer Tamuz's work in Economics focuses on how people learn through social interaction, and on games and strategic behavior in networks. His mathematical interests lie in probability theory, ergodic theory, and their connections to group theory. He has also worked in machine learning and statistics, and in particular in combinatorial statistics, where the estimated parameter takes values in a finite set.
