Ponomarev is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Economics at UCLA (2022).

Richert is a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Economics at Queen’s University. His primary area of research interest lies at the intersection of Empirical Industrial Organization and Finance. His job market paper, “Quantity Commitments in Multiunit Auctions: Evidence from Credit Event Auctions,” estimates “a structural model of bidding behavior in these auctions and uses it to quantify the role of each of these channels in the dynamic auction process.”
He will join the faculty in July 2023, following a one year postdoctoral position at Princeton University.
