Ran Zhuo

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Technology and Operations department at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business. I will join Ross as an Assistant Professor in the summer of 2024. I received my Ph.D. in Business Economics from Harvard University in May 2023.

I have broad and deep research interests at the intersection of economics of innovation, technology, digitization, and industrial organization. My three published papers have examined digital markets, privacy regulations, and open source software. My current and future research will broadly look at allocation of innovation resources and investment in new technologies in organizations. I use a variety of methods, including reduced-form analysis, machine learning, and structural estimation of empirical decision models.
