Yonatan Gur

I am an Associate Professor of Operations, Information, and Technology at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. I received my PhD in Decision, Risk, and Operations from Columbia Business School. I also hold a B.Sc. degree from the School of Physics and Astronomy and an M.Sc. from the School of Mathematical Sciences, Tel Aviv University.

My research combines methods from the operations research and machine learning disciplines with empirical data analysis to study operational challenges that arise in content platforms and markets, and develop new algorithms that effectively address these challenges. My research has been recognized by several awards, including Informs Lanchester Prize. 

I currently serve as an associate editor for Operations Research. 

I have taught core MBA and MSx courses on Operations Management and Strategy, and Ph.D. courses on data-driven dynamic optimization.
