Background

Don Campbell received his BA from Queen’s University in Canada in 1966, and his PhD from Princeton University in 1972.  He taught at the University of Toronto for twenty years, but has been at William and Mary since 1990.  His specialty is mathematical economics, and his research is primarily in the sub-field of mechanism design and social choice theory.  (A mechanism is a formal, mathematical model of a political or economic institution.) 

Don is currently investigating the properties of mechanisms for eliciting truthful revelation of individual preferences. Incentives, that he wrote while developing the courses at William and Mary.  The second edition appeared in 2006.  The book is currently being translated into Chinese.
