Maher Said

Assistant Professor of Economics
NYU Stern School of Business

I am a microeconomic theorist at New York University Stern School of Business, which I joined in July 2014. Before joining NYU Stern, I worked at the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis, and earlier as a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research New England. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from Yale University.

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