I am a long-term research fellow and team leader at CRI research (Paris), a visiting researcher at the Barabasi Lab (Network Science Institute at Northeastern University, Boston) and a research collaborator at Harvard Medical School (Channing Division of Network Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital). I am also the co-founder of Just One Giant Lab, a nonprofit initiative aimed at developing decentralized open science challenges using smart digital tools.
My background is highly interdisciplinary. I majored in Physics and minored in philosophy of science at ENS, Paris. I followed up with a PhD in statistical physics applied to gene regulatory networks, and during my postdoc at the Network Science Institute of Northeastern University and the Division of Network Medicine at Harvard Medical School, I have been investigating biology at all scales, from network medicine (protein interactome analysis) and personalized medicine to hospital network analysis, to the making of biology by studying the iGEM competition, an international student competition of synthetic biology. I have had the pleasure to advise several students, as well as work with numerous international collaborators (USA, France, Germany, England, Spain, India). I have organized several satellites at various conferences (on Network Medicine at NetSci, on Hybrid Collective Intelligence at CCS) and am a co-organizer of the flagship conference in complex systems, the International Conference of Complex Systems (ICCS) in Cambridge, MA. More generally, I am interested in how decentralized open science can solve health related problems at scale in an inclusive way, and in 2018 I received the Sage Bionetworks “Young Investigators Award” for my work on “Algorithms and the role of the individual”.
I am currently located at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) at 10 rue Charles V, Paris 75004, room 2.15.
