Chris Nosko studies industrial organization, applied microeconomics, and computational economics. His research focuses on technology markets. In one project, he uses the CPU market to study how imperfectly competitive firms make product line decisions and the relationship between these decisions and industry innovation. Nosko spent the 2011-2012 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.

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. Prior to pursuing graduate studies, Nosko worked at an economic consulting firm in Chicago and then at the National Bureau of Economic Research in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
