Robert Fletcher Stanford University Economics PhD Candidate


I'm an economist and machine learning engineer with experience studying business and labor markets globally. I love working in impact-focused roles where I can uncover actionable insights and build pragmatic solutions. 

In my current job, I'm a senior machine learning engineer on Instacart's economics team, leading pricing, ads, and marketing initiatives. You can check out this post I co-wrote for more information on our team.

Before this, I completed my Ph.D. in economics at Stanford University, as part of which I managed a study of online entrepreneurship and management across the U.S. in partnership with Stripe. 

Please reach out on LinkedIn or by email. Whether it's a research question, a consulting opportunity, or a chance to collaborate on a new project, I'm always eager to contribute my skills and knowledge, particularly in global health and development.
