I am an economist, belonging to BETA (Bureau d'Economie Théorique et Appliquée) at the University of Strasbourg, France. I have two main topics of research :
- Industrial organization (more particularly, networks and payment systems)
- Economics of Incentives (with applications to personnel economics, and education economics ).

In this article we study how a firm can better coordinate and motivate its employees by fostering the emergence of a social norm through interaction in the workplace. We notably show that the existence of the social norm allows the firm to homogenize the (unobserved) characteristics of heterogeneous employees and to alleviate the adverse selection problem.
Keywords : agency theory, social interaction, social norms, norm regulation, adverse selection
