Alfred Galichon is a professor of economics (Arts & Science) and of mathematics (Courant Institute) at New York University, an affiliated faculty of NYU’s Center for Data Science, and the director of NYU Paris.
Galichon holds a Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University (2007), and an engineering degree from Ecole Polytechnique and one from Ecole des Mines de Paris (Corps des Mines, 2002). He is a “Young leader” of the French-American foundation, an Economic Theory fellow, an IZA and CEPR research fellow, and a past recipient of the Edmond Malinvaud prize. His research interests span widely across theoretical, computational and empirical questions and include econometrics, microeconomic theory, and data science. He is one of the pioneers of the use of optimal transport theory in econometrics, and the author of an open-source statistical software implementing these techniques, TraME. Among his research contributions, he has co-invented vector quantile regression, affinity estimation, and the mass transport approach to demand inversion, a class of methods to invert multinomial choice models. He is also among the early contributors to optimal martingale transport theory, and more recently to equilibrium transport theory. Alfred Galichon is also interested in designing innovative educational experiences.
