Ilan Morgenstern

I am a PhD student in Operations, Information & Technology at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where I'm fortunate to be advised by Daniela Saban and Kostas Bimpikis.

My research explores questions related to the design and operations of online marketplaces and platforms. I am especially interested in the role of data collection and privacy in these markets, and in emerging social commerce platforms. My work aims to advance our understanding of these markets and develop practical recommendations to improve their operations, leveraging tools from game theory, operations research and empirical data analysis.

I am originally from Mexico City. Before coming to Stanford, I graduated from ITAM with degrees in applied mathematics and economics and worked as a management consultant for McKinsey & Company.
