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. I will be joining the faculty in the Management Department at the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in the Summer of 2022.

My research studies: a) how firms respond to innovation and technological change, with a focus on digital platforms and technologies; and b) how institutional features and non-market forces affect innovation and entrepreneurship. 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 the Spotify music streaming 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.
