Einav has also studied consumer behavior and the pricing of subprime auto loans, competition in the motion picture industry, strategic commitment, and more recently peer-to-peer internet markets and healthcare markets. Einav is a co-editor of Econometrica and serves on the editorial board of several other journals. He received his undergraduate degree in computer science and economics from Tel Aviv University (Israel) in 1997, and his PhD in economics from Harvard University in 2002.
