Chris Nosko studies industrial organization, applied microeconomics, and computational economics. His research focuses on technology markets. In one project, he uses the central processing unit market to study how imperfectly competitive firms make product line decisions and the relationship between these decisions and industry innovation. Nosko spent the 2011–12 year working at eBay in their research labs. While there he pursued projects related to pricing in two-sided markets, measuring the effectiveness of paid search advertisements, and understanding repeat buyer purchase behavior.
He recently co-authored “Supply Responses to Digital Distribution: Recorded Music and Live Performances” in Information Economics and Policy with Julie Mortimer and Alan Sorensen.
Nosko earned his PhD in economics from Harvard University. An alumnus of the University of Chicago, he earned his AB in economics and history in 2003.
Nosko joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2012.
