Professor Rogers' research interests are in microeconomic theory, in particular the fields of network formation, social learning, and applied game theory. 

Some of his research employs laboratory experiments to test modeling assumptions, and suggest directions for improving theories. He is also interested in developing and applying statistical game theoretic models, which are theoretically interesting and often useful for describing and interpreting experimental data. His current work explores the implications of symmetries between players in repeated games, and the extent to which cooperation can be sustained in anonymous environments with turnover.
