Arun Sundararajan

Professor
NYU's Stern School of Business

I'm a professor at New York University's Stern School of Business, where I teach about tech entrepreneurship, the digital economy, artificial intelligence and the future of work. I'm also the author of "The Sharing Economy" (available in English, Mandarin Chinese and Japanese, forthcoming in Korean, Portuguese and Vietnamese). I'm affiliated with many of NYU's interdisciplinary efforts, including our Center for Data Science, our Center for Urban Science and Progress, and our Creativity, Entrepreneurship and Innovation initiative.

My research is about how digital technologies transform business, government and civil society. I've published over 50 scientific papers in peer-reviewed academic journals and conferences, and more than 35 op-eds in a variety of media outlets. I've keynoted hundreds of events around the world. I spend time helping government at all levels think through digital. (Over the last couple of years, this has included the US Congress, the European Parliament, the City of New York, the National Academy of Science, Engineering and Medicine, the National Economic Council, and the Federal Trade Commission.)

I'm a member of the World Economic Forum's Global Future Council on Technology, Values and Policy, and advisor to a range of organizations that include the Female Founders Fund, the Internet Society of China, OuiShare, Samasource, the City of Seoul, the National League of Cities, the Royal Society for the Arts, and the Center for Global Enterprise.
