Hanna Halaburda joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Associate Professor of Technology, Operations and Statistics in September 2019.

In her research, Professor Halaburda studies how technology changes economic forces, affecting interactions in the marketplace and business models. Much of her work focuses on competition between platforms (e.g., Apple’s iPhone vs. Android or eHarmony vs. Match). The most current theme in her research is the development of digital currencies and blockchain technologies. Professor Halaburda’s work has been published in Management Science, RAND, American Economic Journal, Games and Economic Behavior, and other academic journals. She also wrote a book, with Miklos Sarvary, on digital currencies, Beyond Bitcoin: The Economics of Digital Currency (Palgrave, 2016).

Prior to joining NYU Stern, Professor Halaburda was an Assistant Professor at Harvard Business School, and a senior economist at the Bank of Canada.

She holds Master’s degrees in Economics from the Warsaw School of Economics and Philosophy from Warsaw University, and a PhD in Economics from Northwestern University.
