Juan Camilo Castillo


I am an Assistant Professor in the Economics Department at the University of Pennsylvania. I finished my PhD in the Economics Department at Stanford University in June 2020.

My main interests are in Industrial Organization, Microeconomic Theory, and Market Design, with a focus on online platforms and the digital economy. I'm also part of AcceleratingHT, a group of economists working on how to accelerate widespread access Covid-19 vaccines. Some of my earlier research analyzes the economics of violence and illegal drug markets.
