Basil Halperin


I am a postdoc at the Stanford Digital Economy Lab. In fall 2025, I’ll join the University of Virginia as an assistant professor of economics.

My research focuses on topics in monetary economics, macroeconomic growth, and AI.

I received my PhD in economics from MIT in 2024. In past lives, I worked as a data scientist at Uber and as a quant at AQR Capital Management, and studied at the University of Chicago.

If you have questions or comments about my research – or want to discuss research ideas – I’d love to talk with you (email, Twitter).
