new!  Two 6-month MSc research internships will be open soon, related to the effect of algorithms on recommendation diversity. These internships will target students interested in the study public space, social network analysis or natural language processing, with a diversity of profiles from political science, computer science, sociology or applied mathematics. This will take place in the framework of Algodiv, a project mentioned below. Please feel free to inquire in advance.


Here is a list of grants I am currently coordinating at CNRS, as a global PI.


  • ANR-funded project (Generic Call 2015), active 2016-2019.
  • AlgoDiv ("Algorithmic Recommendation and Information Diversity") is an interdisciplinary project gathering sociologists and computer scientists, focusing on the role of algorithms and algorithmic practices on information diversity in online communities, especially recommendation and filtering algorithms.

Here are projects I am actively participating in.


  • Analysis of Socio-Semantic Networks.
  • Funded since 2012 by the Interdisciplinary Endeavor of CNRS on Big Data (MASTODONS).

Finally closed projects.


  • ANR-funded project (CONTINT 2011), active 2012-2015.
  • AlgoPol ("Politique des algorithmes") is an interdisciplinary project gathering sociologists and computer scientists. The current evolution of the Internet relies crucially on algorithms for ranking and sorting digital content and online users and, more broadly, for appraising information circulation. The objective of the project is to analyze these transformations, the use of these algorithms and to develop knowledge regarding the new metrics of information on the web.

EU-funded project (ICT, FP7), active from March 2009 until August 2013.
QLectives aimed at studying collaborative content production in "Quality Collectives", i.e. functional decentralized communities that self-organize for the benefit of its participants, with two prototypical application domains: science and media content production.
Project website:
A collective book gathers key contributions from the project and is available here.


ANR-funded project (SYSCOMM 2009), active from November 2009 until November 2012.
SIMPA aimed at appraising the structure and morphogenesis of kinship network, focusing notably on bias and missing data, and gathered modelers and anthropologists for around three years.
Project website:


ANR-funded project (SYSCOMM 2008), Jan 2009-Dec 2010.
Webfluence endeavored at analyzing, modeling and reconstructing the structure and dynamics of blog networks (including morphogenesis and diffusion phenomena). Project website:
