Note: the application process is now over! However, if you are interested in the project and would like to do an internship, do not hesitate to contact me!
We are looking for postdoctoral associates and PhD candidates in the area of Network Science and Science of Science to join us at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) in Paris. We seek curious, motivated, autonomous, ambitious individuals with strong analytical skills, network science or data science experience and interest in applying it towards social systems. The ideal candidate has a physics, computer science, bioinformatics, data science, network science, computational social science or mathematics background with coding experience, and thrives in inter/anti-disciplinarity dynamic environments, is inspired and motivated by daily interactions with diverse peers, comfortably mixes disciplines and wishes to explore uncharted domains.
My presentation on iGEM got the prize for best presentation at the Complex Networks 2017 conference in Lyon, France ! In this work, we investigate criteria of performance and success of teams in a scientific context. We leverage laboratory notebooks edited on wiki websites by student teams participating to the international Genetically Engineered Machines (iGEM) synthetic biology competition to uncover what features of team work best predict short term quality (medals, prizes) and long term impact (how the biological parts that teams engineer are re-used by other teams). Thanks to the organizers for the nice award (and I got two beautiful pens :))!
These are the slides for a talk I gave at Pasteur Institute and at Sanofi R&D in October 2017.
I elaborated these slides for an introductory class on Network Medicine given at UPV Valencia in October 2017.
I have the honor to have been selected to become a CRI fellow for the next 3 years! It will allow me to pursue further my research on the team collaboration patterns that underlie scientific performance and success in the iGEM competition!
Our initiative Just One Giant Lab (JoGL) has now its landing page! Visit it and subscribe to our mailing list!
I will give a talk at the Complex Networks 2017 conference in Lyon (Nov 29 – Dec 01 2017). My presentation will cover the iGEM study on team success in science. You can have a look at my abstract!
I will have the chance to be a co-organizer of the International Conference of Complex Systems 2018 (ICCS18) in Cambridge, MA (USA)! This conference has two major aims: first, to investigate those properties or characteristics that appear to be common to the very different complex systems now under study; and second, to encourage cross fertilization among the many disciplines involved.
