University of ESSEC- Business School
Gorkem Celik teaches economics in the PhD, advanced masters, and MBA programs. Before joining ESSEC in 2009, he worked at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver. Gorkem is an economic theorist. He studies what type of economic institutions and mechanisms are needed to achieve specific objectives. His main focus is on settings where individuals hold relevant private information (such as the cost of providing a service or the value of using it), but are unwilling to reveal this information due to conflicting self interests.
Gorkem uses game theory to understand how people react to different rules under different information structures. Gorkem's research has been supported by the Humanities and Social Sciences Research Council of Canada and the European Commission through a Marie Curie Reintegration Grant.
His research papers appear in academic journals including Journal of Economic Theory, Games and Economic Behavior, and RAND Journal of Economics.
