Short Bio
Nicolas Stier-Moses is a Research Scientist at Facebook Core Data Science.
Nicolas' research
focuses on the study of the impact that self-minded agents have on
decentralized systems. In particular, he likes exploring mechanisms that can
help coordinate agents, either by design or by offering the correct
incentives. The bulk of his work has been in the area of networks subject to
competition in which personal incentives and risk aversion can generate
inefficiencies.
Previously he was an Associate Professor at the Decision, Risk and
Operations Division of Columbia
Business School, and
an Associate Professor (on leave) at
the Business
School of Universidad Torcuato Di
Tella.
He received a Ph.D. degree from the Operations Research Center of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
