Hervé Moulin Biography 

Hervé Moulin graduated in 1971 from the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, and received his Ph.D. in mathematics from the Université de Paris in 1975. He has taught at the Ecole Nationale de la Statistique et Administration Economique, University of Paris at Dauphine, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, Duke University and Rice University. He is currently D. J. Robertson Chair in Economics at the University of Glasgow. He is a Fellow of the Econometric Society since 1983, of the Royal Society of Edinburgh since 2015, and of the British Academy since 2018. He is currently the President of the Game Theory Society. His research has been supported in part by seven NSF grants. He has written five books and over 100 peer-reviewed articles. He is an Associate Editor of Games and Economic Behavior, Mathematics of Operations Research, Transactions in Economics and Computations, and a Co-Editor of Economic Theory.

His work has contributed to redefining the field of ‘normative economics’, by borrowing concepts and techniques from social choice, implementation, and game theories. The goal is to invent new mechanisms --or justify existing ones-- in a variety of resource allocation problems. Examples include voting by successive veto, generalized median voting rules; the fair division of an estate (as in a divorce or inheritance); rationing of over-demanded commodities (such as organs for transplant or seats for a popular event); the exploitation of a “commons”, i.e., a technology producing a public good, an excludable public good, or private goods; the assignment of tasks between workers; the scheduling of jobs in a queue; sharing the cost and pricing the traffic of a communication network, etc..
His most recent textbook, Fair Division and Collective Welfare (MIT Press 2003), introduces the broad contributions of microeconomic analysis to fair division problems.
