Hervé Moulin, who is turning 65 this year, is one of the most prolific and original researchers in game theory and social choice. He graduated from Ecole Normale Supérieure in maths and started his career in Paris at the Laboratoire d'Econométrie de l'Ecole Polytechnique and the University Paris-Dauphine. He later moved to the United States, where he held professorships at Virginia tech, Duke and Rice University, and is currently the Donald J. Robertson Chair of Economics at the Adam Smith Business School at the University of Glasgow. Early in his career, he published one of the first books on game theory, which became a source of inspiration for many generations of researchers. He later published classical books on allocation and cost sharing problems and strategic aspects of social choice. Hervé Moulin published seminal articles on public good provision, mechanism design, assignment mechanisms and sharing rules. He also has applied interests on computational mechanism design and the practical implementation of mechanisms and sharing rules. He counts as his former doctoral students some of the brightest minds in our profession. His kindness, enthusiasm and energy have been noted by all the people who interacted with him.
