Carlos' research focuses on exploring the mathematical properties of equilibrium in game theoretical models. He uses these insights to develop applications of game theory to voting and political economy settings, and to testing the validity of game theoretical predictions in experimental settings.

Carlos is Associate Editor of the Journal of Mathematical Economics since 2020.
