Mohammad AKBARPOUR is Associate Professor of Economics at the Stanford Graduate School of Business and Associate Professor of Computer Science (by courtesy) at Stanford University.

His research interests focus on microeconomic theory, matching/auction design, social and economic networks and over-the-counter financial markets. He works on market design, the interaction of design and inequality, as well as networked markets. He is particularly interested in understanding how the kidney exchange markets, school choice systems, and the labour markets evolve, and to improve their designs. In 2020 he was named Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellow in Economics for his "promising explorations that bridge computer science and economic theory".

Mohammad AKBARPOUR will present a paper, joint with Scott DUKE KOMINERS, Shengwu LI, and Paul MILGROM, at the first Roy-Adres Seminar of the year on the theme:
