Biography

Professor Filippas is an assistant professor of Information Systems at Fordham University's Gabelli School of Business. He is an economist working on market design in the context of online marketplaces, and, more broadly, on the economics of technology.

His recent work examines topics including the economic and policy implications of the "sharing economy,'' the limits of online reputation systems, and the management of changes in P2P markets. Professor Filippas’ work has appeared in venues such as Management Science, the San Francisco Federal Reserve Bank, the ACM conference on Economics and Computation (EC), and the ZEW Conference on the Economics of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT).

He earned his Ph.D. degree in business administration from NYU Stern School of Business, and an undergraduate degree in computer science (summa cum laude) from the University of Patras.
