On March 21, Mohammad Akbarpour, Associate Professor of Economics at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, will visit Princeton to deliver the prestigious Uwe Reinhardt Distinguished Lecture.
Akbarpour studies market design, the interaction of design and inequality, as well as networked markets. He is particularly interested in the function and design of kidney exchange markets, school choice systems, and labor markets.
The Uwe Reinhardt Distinguished Lectureship was created through a gift from Gilchrist B. Berg (’73) in honor of Uwe E. Reinhardt, Princeton’s James Madison Professor of Political Economy, Economics, and Public Affairs.
Reinhardt, who was a member of Princeton’s faculty for nearly 50 years, was one of the nation’s leading economists, with particular expertise in the American health care system. His advice was frequently sought by policymakers, journalists, and health-related organizations here and abroad, as well as by Congress. He was known as a charismatic and generous teacher with an incisive wit and a warm, irreverent personality that endeared him to generations of students and colleagues.
