Olivier Tercieux is chaired professor at Paris School of Economics, research director at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and affiliated researcher at the Institut des Politiques Publiques (IPP). His research interests are in game theory and its applications. His scientific contributions, published in high level journals, are internationally recognized in the fields of non-cooperative game theory, evolutionary game theory and mechanism design. More applied, his recent research focuses on problems of optimal allocation of “goods” when there is no exchange currency (allocation of social housing, places in public schools or organs to patients).
