Hervé Moulin - Biography#


Hervé Moulin graduated in 1971 from the Ecole Normale Superieure in Paris, and received his PhD in mathematics from the Université de Paris in 1975. Before joining the University of Glasgow, he held positions in Paris, Blacksburg Virginia, Durham North Carolina, and Houston Texas. He has written five books and over 100 peer-reviewed articles.

Moulin's early work focused on the incentives properties of voting rules, and the design of cooperative scenarios in games of strategy. His subsequent work contributes to redefining the field of "normative economics", poised to invent new resource allocation mechanisms - or refine existing ones - in a variety of contexts: voting rules; the fair division of assets (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"; the assignment of tasks between workers; the scheduling of jobs in a queue; and pricing traffic of a communication network.

Moulin has been a Fellow of the Econometric Society since 1983 and of the British Academy since 2018. He was the fourth President of the Social Choice and Welfare Society, right after Nobel Laureates K. Arrow, A Sen and J. Harsanyi, and is currently the ninth President of the Game Theory Society.
