Maher Said

Assistant Professor of Economics
NYU Stern School of Business

I am a microeconomic theorist at New York University’s Stern School of Business. Before joining NYU Stern in 2014, I worked at Washington University’s Olin Business School and at Microsoft Research New England. I earned my PhD in Economics from Yale University.

I work at the intersection of game theory and industrial organization, with a primary focus on dynamic mechanism design. My research studies the optimal design of contracts, auctions, and markets in the presence of persistent information asymmetries.
