Sylvia Hristakeva is an Assistant Professor of Marketing at Cornell University's Dyson School of Applied Economics and Management within the SC Johnson College of Business.

Her primary research provides empirical insights on how vertical relations between producers and suppliers affect market competition, product availability, and welfare. Hristakeva analyzes settings where contracts between firms are unobserved, with policy and managerial contributions.

A separate line of research answers policy-relevant questions related to consumers’ heath choices, looking at 1) the determinants of healthiness of consumers’ food baskets and 2) the effect of advertising on consumers’ adherence to prescription medication and subsequent effects on health outcomes.
