EDIT: the position is now closed.
We currently offer a postdoc or research engineer position in the areas of Computational Social Science, Network Science, Big Data, and Social Network Analysis, to be filled immediately.
The applicant will join my team at the CRI to work on large-scale datasets to understand the dynamics of radicalisation of digital communities. In particular, the applicant will work on a project in collaboration with Hugo Micheron (ENS Paris) and Samuel Fraiberger (NYU, World Bank) to map the temporal evolution of the influence network of radical Islam on the web using large datasets from Twitter, Youtube and Facebook. The project is supported by a “Domaine d’Interet Majeur” funding from the region Ile de France.

As the New Year just passed, I thought I’d give a go at a general life update and some personal reflections.
TL;DR: it was a busy year.Continue reading
Our work on the rise and fall of research fields has been featured in the French newspaper Le Monde. The content can be accessed here (in French). We explain how the analysis of millions of scientific articles showed that innovators in Science work in small teams, are young, multidisciplinary (publish in many disciplines) and interdisciplinary (publish at the border between disciplines). Paper to come soon!
With Just One Giant Lab we just organized our first hackathon on Open Data and Vaccination for our first program Co-Immune! We had 6 teams with great ideas and projects using data science to better understand vaccination hesitancy and access to vaccines. More below:
A lot has happened since I started my lab last year, and I wanted to showcase a bunch of projects that we have begun to tackle at CRI with my team, the Network Ties! Below you can find a poster presenting our work in quantifying innovation and large-scale collaboration in science and technology. These various projects combine physics-inspired modeling, network and data science to better understand how collective intelligence shape both learning and solving! If you’re interested in these projects, we are hiring! Do not hesitate to contact me for further information!
