I will be visiting the Santa Fe Institute for Complex Systems from Wednesday 20 Feb to Friday 22 Feb. This will be the occasion to discuss potential projects with future CRI fellow and “network archeologist” Stefani Crabtree, as well as discover this fantastic place in the desert mountains of New Mexico!Continue reading
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 :))!
