The Brand New Economics Think Tank in Austin

Updated: Sep 26, 2018

Austin, TX. - September 25th, 2018 – Founded by Dr. Devrim Ikizler earlier this year, Intelligent Analytics and Modeling is now offering its economic research and consulting services to businesses, law firms and government entities. Dr. Devrim Ikizler has over seven years’ experience as a researcher in the field of economics and as an expert witness he has testified in US federal and state courts. In his career, he has consulted on and testified in cases involving industry giants such as Wal-Mart, Google and Facebook. Over the course of his career, he has won his clients over billions of dollars in business damages.

In June, Intelligent Analytics and Modeling hired talented economist John William Meyer, who recently received his master’s degree in economics from UT Austin. John William is an essential part of the IA&M team with his experience in data analytics and background in tech start-ups. The IA&M team recently reached 5 employees.

Our team is further excited to announce partnerships with renowned economist Professor Stephen Magee of UT Austin McCombs School, who served as an economic advisor in four presidential administrations. We are also thrilled to announce a partnership with the chair of the Economics Department at the University of Texas at Austin, Professor Jason Abrevaya, a top-notch expert in the field of statistical analysis.

Along with our economic consulting work, our team also conducts economic research. Last year Dr. Ikizler formed part of a research team that conducted an economic impact study of Austin’s No Kill pet shelter policy. Along with other UT affiliated scholars, he also helped develop an economic model to efficiently allocate federal recovery dollars after Hurricane Harvey.

Intelligent Analytics and Modeling plans to grow both its economic litigation and research portfolios: “we look forward to taking advantage of the talent pool in Austin and to collaborating with academic experts in urban planning and transportation on a variety of government funded research projects.”

IA&M uses a comprehensive scientific approach to predictive modeling that combines advanced data analysis tools such as Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning; and utilizes crowd sourced data (such as Google and Yelp Reviews or social media data) along with rigorous econometric tools to produce accurate policy and impact evaluations.

Intelligent Analytics and Modeling’s goal is to become one of the premiere economic think tanks in the world. As Austin grows as a leader in technology and healthcare – we hope to put it on the map as a leader in cutting edge economics research.
