Tjalling Charles Koopmans s-a nascut la Gravelinas, Olanda. La inceputul celui de-al doilea razboi mondial a emigrat in Statele Unite unde a capatat nationalitatea. A obtinut Premiul Nobel in economie in 1975, impartindu-l cu economistul rus Leonid Vitaliyevich Kantorovich pentru contributiile sale la teoria optimii localizari a resurselor.

Koopmans a studiat fizica si matematica la Universitatea din Utrecht si si-a luat doctoratul in statistica si economie la Universitatea din Leiden. A fost consultant financiar al Societatii Natiunilor de la Geneva (1938-1940). A fost  profesor la Universitatile din Chicago (1946-1955) si Yale. Director al Comisiei Cowles (1944-1954) si membru al Fundatiei Cowles in Yale (1961-1967).
