Dr. Robert J. Aumann is a professor at the Center for the Study of Rationality in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. In 1938, Professor Aumann immigrated with his family to the United States from Germany, barely escaping the Nazis and the Holocaust.

In the 1950’s, while studying at the MIT, Aumann met John Nash, whose theories he would later incorporate into his work on conflict and cooperation. In 1955, he received his PhD in Mathematics.

Aumann went on to receive the Nobel Prize for economics in 2005.
