Manav Raj

NYU Stern - Management & Organizations

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Management & Organizations department at the Leonard Stern School of Business at New York University with a planned graduation in May 2022.

In my dissertation, I study the strategic implications of digital platforms for the firms competing on top of them. My job market paper considers the presence of countervailing competitive and complementary dynamics between providers on a digital platform. In a study of artists on the Spotify music streaming platform, I examine when and under what conditions peer expansion can be beneficial vs. detrimental for providers on the platform.

I graduated from Dartmouth College in 2015, with a major in Economics and a minor in Public Policy. Prior to entering the Ph.D. program at NYU, I worked as a consultant with Cornerstone Research in Boston.
