Yash Kanoria

("Yash" rhymes with "rush" and is a short version of "Yashodhan". I'm a proud Indian American.)

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

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

I received an NSF CAREER Award in 2017.

I would encourage strong PhD candidates (e.g., top IIT students) to apply to our highly successful Columbia DRO PhD program, which has been consistently placing students in top faculty and industry positions. Our training and output matches the best technical programs in engineering, etc., while the faculty-student ratio and environment are unparalleled.

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 am teaching an interdisciplinary research-oriented PhD class B9144: Statistical Physics, Markets and Algorithms.
