Alvin Roth, recipient of the 2012 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics, will give the 56th Annual Carl Snyder Memorial Lecture at UC Santa Barbara on Thursday, April 10. He will speak on “The Economist as Engineer.”

His talk will begin at 3:30 p.m. in the University Center Corwin Pavilion at UCSB. It is free and open to the public. Seating is limited, however, and reservations are recommended by contacting Haley Porter in the Department of Economics at hayley.porter@ucsb.edu.

Roth, the Craig and Susan McCaw Professor of Economics at Stanford University, specializes in game theory, experimental economics and market design. His research is aimed at improving real world market interaction. Through empirical studies and lab experiments, Roth and his colleagues demonstrated that stability was critical to successful matching methods. Using this principle, Roth developed systems for matching doctors with hospitals, students with schools and organ donors with patients.

The recipient of numerous honors and awards, Roth is an Alfred P. Sloan fellow, a Guggenheim fellow and a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is a member of the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Econometric Society. A collection of his papers is housed at the Rubenstein Library at Duke University.

The Carl Snyder Memorial Lecture is named for the noted economic authority and author who died in 1946. Established in 1960 with a bequest from the estate of Snyder’s wife, Madeleine Raisch, the memorial is used to bring outstanding lecturers in the field of economics to UCSB.
