Andrey Ordin is an assistant professor of finance at the McCombs School of Business at The University of Texas at Austin.
Ordin is an industrial organization economist with an interest in energy. His research in the oil and gas industry concerns finding equitable leasing contracts for all drilling stakeholders — the landowners, the companies that drill, and the government. His other studies look for ways to optimize oil tax policies.
In other work, he has looked at municipal bonds and learned that state taxes are a highly efficient tool for lowering the cost of borrowing for municipalities. The study was especially timely amid the uptick in state and local borrowing during the pandemic.
Ordin earned a doctorate from Duke University and completed postdoctoral research at the University of Chicago Harris School of Public Policy.
