Robin S. Lee joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Economics in July 2009.

Professor Lee's primary research interests are industrial organization and applied microeconomic theory. His research focuses on bilateral oligopoly in networked industries and contracting between firms with market power. His recent work concentrates on platform and two-sided markets - with applications in hardware-software industries, content distribution and the healthcare sector - and examines the implications of exclusive or selective contracting and vertical integration on industry structure, competition and welfare.

Professor Lee received his A.B. and A.M. in Economics and his Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University.
