ALEXANDER AURELL

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University, in the Operations Research and Financial Engineering (ORFE) department. I obtained my M.Sc. and Ph.D. from KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

My research interests are mean field games, mean-field type control theory, network games, learning in games, and stochastic models for crowd dynamics.
