She is a recipient of the Provost’s Ph.D. Fellowship (2011), the USC University Outstanding Teaching Award (2016), and the Marshall Ph.D. Teaching Award (2016). Her paper titled, “Real-time Optimization of Personalized Assortments” was a finalist for the 2016 MSOM Student Paper Competition. Negin’s research focuses on the economic and operational properties of online markets and platforms. Online markets provide unprecedented amounts of data that allow for quicker optimal market design. Negin addresses the need for robust policies that make an effective use of the available data and for the market to perform well if customers’ demands change over time. In 2018, Negin will join the MIT Sloan School of Management at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as a tenure-track Assistant Professor.
