The Quello Center’s Assistant Research Professor, Aleks Yankelevich, has been appointed to an Adjunct Professor position by the Department of Economics at MSU. As the Chair of the Department of Economics, Professor Tim Vogelsang, the Addy Chair of Economics, put it:
“After obtaining his PhD in Economics from Washington University (2011) and working as an industry economist at the FCC, he joined the Quello Center in the Department of Media and Information at Michigan State University as a Research Assistant Professor this past Fall.
Aleks is currently serving as a member on a dissertation committee of one of our PhD students and he has further taken an active interest in the development of many of our other PhD students with an interest in media, the internet, and platform markets, having spent considerable amounts of time working together with them on their research topics.”
The Quello Center values the role Aleks has developed with Economics, where he is a regular and active contributor to their theory seminars. As the Center seeks to become a hub for Internet and digital policy and regulatory research across the university, such connections become increasingly valuable.
