I am researcher / data analyst, with a background in physics. After a PhD in physics at ENS Lyon, working within its complex systems institute – aka IXXI – and Post-Docs at INRIA Lyon and MIT Senseable City Lab, I am currently working part-time (45%) as a project manager at the University of Lyon, working on several governance projects dealing with international rankings or bibliometrics, part-time (45%) as a researcher at ENS Lyon, part-time (10%) as a free-lance data scientist.
My interests lie in the understanding and modeling of socio-economic systems, social dynamics and mobility, and social networks from a statistical physics viewpoint. I’m involved in projects focusing on human behavior and interactions in cities (as analyzed through mobile phone or transaction data) or social networks (as analysed through Twitter, Facebook, etc. content). The main focus of my current work is detection, analysis and visualisation of scientific research patterns through the analysis of bibliographic data (cf the BiblioTools/BiblioMaps section of my website).
