Yash Kanoria

("Yash" rhymes with "rush" and is a short version of "Yashodhan".)

I'm an Associate Professor of Business in the Decision, Risk and Operations division at Columbia Business School.

My core research centers on the design and optimization of marketplaces including matching markets and online platforms.

I teach Business Analytics in the MBA core. Some time back I co-taught a PhD class Engineering Online Matching Markets with Jay Sethuraman. In Fall 2019, I taught an interdisciplinary research-oriented PhD class Statistical Physics, Markets and Algorithms.
