Ying Chen is Assistant Professor at the Johns Hopkins University. Her research interests are in game theory, information economics and political economy, and she is particularly interested in strategic communication and dynamic bargaining. One of her recent papers models rhetoric in legislative bargaining as “cheap talk” and investigates the extent to which such communication can convey private information about legislators’ preferences and how it affects the bargaining outcome. Another recent paper discusses the optimal way to present arguments in debates in order to persuade the audience.
