Student Spotlight: Senior Thesis and Colloquium-Zachary '20
Senior Thesis and Colloquium is the culmination of a seven-year journey. Bosque seniors undertake a yearlong independent research project and deliver their findings in a twenty-page research essay, as well as in a public presentation at Colloquium. Over the course of the year, students will submit a formal prospectus, conduct text-based research and fieldwork, and test their arguments at a defense.
In the weeks leading up to Colloquium on May 13 and 14, the BUZZ will feature the thesis topics of Bosque’s seniors and provide insight into these student-researchers as they work toward the completion and presentation of their finished work.
Are ambiguity and uncertainty inherent in Game Theory’s approach to prisoner’s dilemma, zero sum game, and ultimatum game?
About Zachary’s Thesis:
For his thesis, Zachary wants to find out whether or not ambiguity and uncertainty are inherent in Game Theory’s three games: prisoner’s dilemma, zero sum game, and ultimatum game. Zachary chose these three games to help explore whether or not ambiguity and uncertainty are inherent in their approaches.
Zachary chose this topic because he finds it fascinating and enjoys that there are many possible ways to look at the subject. It is also a novel topic to him that he is eager to learn more about.
Zachary has been playing soccer every year since he started at Bosque. He has been team captain for both his junior and senior year. He plans on studying engineering in college.
