Mohammad Rasouli

UPDATE: I have moved to Stanford University where I am a post doctoral scholar in the Management Science and Engineering Department working with Prof. Peter Glynn, Prof. Ramesh Johari, and Prof. Ram Rajagopal. I am a member of Stanford Social Algorithms Lab. I collaborate with Stanford Sustainable Systems Lab (S3L) and run the Stanford SmartGrid Seminar. I have also had the opportunity to collaborate with Prof. Gabriel Weintraub in lecturing GSB OIT648: Empirics of Online Markets.

My research interest has been in using theory and data in addressing social inequality and discrimination focusing on online platforms, and addressing sustainability challenges focusing on energy sector. I use mechanism design, machine learning and causal inference, empirical I/O, and stochastic control. I also particularly enjoy teaching, see our experimental paper with flipped teaching to ~650 students! My new website is under construction. Stay tuned! Meanwhile you can contact me at

In 2018, I graduated from PhD program in Electrical Engineering: Systems at the University of Michigan working with Prof. Demosthenis Teneketzis, where I also followed my MSc in Economics. I am thrilled to worked with Prof. Paul Milgrom, Prof. William Hogan , and Prof. Asuman Ozdaglar as committee members of my thesis on markets for sustainable electricity network. Prior to PhD, I received BSc in Electrical Engineering: Communications from Sharif University of Technology working with Prof. Jamal Golestani.
