Nora Szech (1980 – 2023)

We mourn the loss of our colleague and friend Nora Szech. She held the position of professor of political economy at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, and she was a distinguished scholar in the fields of microeconomic theory and experimental economics. During her career, Nora made a number of groundbreaking research contributions, particularly in the theory of market design and the empirics of moral behavior. Her active involvement with the general public also stood out.

Nora made a difference. She was motivated by scientific curiosity and care for younger researchers. She excelled not only as a scholar but also as a mentor, generously sharing her time and energy. Her profound dedication to the questions she studied, her moral compass, and her disarming openness will long be remembered by the ESA community.
