I’m currently on sabbatical leave. Until January 2024, I am at “Mathematics and Computer Science of Market and Mechanism Design” programme at  Simons-Laufer Mathematical Sciences Institute with a joint appointment at the Department of Mathematics at U.C. Berkeley. This semester I am teaching a graduate course called  “Market Design” (MATH272; syllabus) and often attending seminars and lunches at the Department of Economics. 

I’m a Professor of Economics at the Department of Economics, University of Oxford, a Tutorial Fellow at St. Catherine’s College, and a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School. I direct the Oxford University Business Economics Programme.

My research interests lie mainly in market design and the economics of networks. I am also interested in environmental economics and am part of the Leverhulme Centre for Nature Recovery.

I often advise companies, governments and NGOs on auction and market design.

I am also co-founder of Refugees.AI, an organisation that is developing new technology for refugee resettlement (originally funded by Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship).
