Education and career[edit]

After earning a master's degree in mathematics at Saint Petersburg State University in 1989,[2] Bogomolnaia went to the Autonomous University of Barcelona for doctoral studies in economics.[1] Her 1998 dissertation, Medians and Lotteries: Strategy-Proof Social Choice Rules for Restricted Domains, was supervised by Salvador Barberà [es].[3]

After earning her doctorate, she worked at the University of Nottingham,[1] became an assistant professor at Southern Methodist University,[4] and earned tenure at Rice University in 2005.[5] She took her positions at the University of Glasgow and the Higher School of Economics in 2013 and 2015 respectively.[1][2]


Bogomolnaia is known for her work on coalitions and on randomized solutions to assignment problems. With Hervé Moulin she formulated the probabilistic-serial procedure for solving the fair random assignment problem.[6] With Matthew O. Jackson she introduced the concept of hedonic games to model coalition-forming in multiplayer games.[7]
