Prasanna Tambe joined New York University Stern School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Information, Operations and Management Sciences in July 2008.

Professor Tambe's research focuses on the economics of IT labor and on how the diffusion of technical skills and know-how affect firm and regional performance. In recent papers, Professor Tambe has studied the effects of offshoring on the demand for technical skills and how the flow of technical skills within the US economy affects productivity and growth through the diffusion of new IT innovations. His research has been published or is forthcoming in a number of academic journals including Management Science, Information Systems Research, Communications of the ACM, and Information Economics and Policy. This work has been supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation.

Professor Tambe received his S.B. and M.Eng. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his Ph.D. in Managerial Science and Applied Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
