Tomás Domínguez-Iino

I am a Research Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.

My research interests are in industrial organization, trade, and environmental economics.

I completed my PhD at NYU in 2021, after which I worked at the Federal Reserve Board before returning to academia. 

At the Board, my policy work was on energy commodity markets, focusing on the near-term impact of geopolitical developments for the oil and gas industry, as well as longer-term implications for the clean energy transition.   |   curriculum vitae   |   google scholar

Short bio

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, but grew up mostly in South Africa and Trinidad & Tobago. At 18, I returned to Argentina and enrolled at Di Tella, where I first learned economics.  After completing my undergraduate degree, I spent a few years working in the tech industry before deciding to pursue a research career. I was very lucky to be able to come to the United States, and in particular to be accepted for graduate school at NYU, where I completed my PhD in 2021.
