My research lies at the interface between social and computational sciences, around keywords such as social network analysis, complex system modeling, socio-semantic networks, mathematical sociology, sociology of the internet, social cognition, algorithmic society, qual-quant approaches, natural language processing, automated information extraction, graphs and hypergraphs.
Institutionally, I have been navigating between both areas as well: I am currently research professor in computer science at CNRS, where I have been tenured without teaching duties since 2008, and professor in sociology at EHESS since 2023, after a couple of other tenured university positions in sociology: at Sciences Po as associate professor (“professeur”, 2016-18) and in Toulouse as assistant professor (“maître de conférences”, 2007-08) – see my resume for the specifics and the background.
I am based at the Centre d’Analyse et de Mathématique Sociales, a CNRS/EHESS joint lab located in Paris. I am furthermore associated researcher at Centre Marc Bloch in Berlin, a CNRS lab abroad, where I still lead the Computational Social Science Team that I founded there in 2012.
