Professor Kominers’s research focuses on market design, developing economic analysis that provides practical solutions to real-world problems. He works at all stages of the economic design process—building underlying theory and technology, identifying new design applications, and working with practitioners to implement solutions to market failures. He also advises startups engaged in marketplace development and design, serves on the National Leadership Council of the Society for Science & the Public, and co-leads one of the Human Capital and Economic Opportunity global working groups on inequality.

Professor Kominers has been supported by the National Science Foundation, the Star Family Fund, the William F. Milton Fund, and the Oxford Martin School, among others. He received the AMS-MAA-SIAM Frank and Brennie Morgan Prize in 2010, was named a Kavli Frontiers of Science Fellow in 2015, and won the Star Family Prize for Excellence in Advising in 2016.

After receiving his AB summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa in mathematics (with a minor in ethnomusicology) at Harvard University in 2009, Professor Kominers earned his AM and PhD in Business Economics at Harvard, in 2010 and 2011, respectively. From 2011-2013, he was the inaugural Research Scholar at the Becker Friedman Institute for Research in Economics at the University of Chicago; then from 2013-2017, he was a Junior Fellow at the Harvard Society of Fellows.

Professor Kominers uses his knowledge of math and music to motivate students in the classroom.​
