Principaux domaines de recherche: sociologie du numérique ; science and technologies studies ; sociologie du journalisme ; sociologie de l’innovation.

My research explores the interplay between technology, news organizations and democracy, based on qualitative and computational methods.

I have previously conducted fieldwork – mostly in the U.S. and France – on legal regulation of the media; digital innovation in news organizations; and the emerging relationships between journalism and computer science.

I also contribute to the definition of new computational methods in sociology, through several research projects based on the statistical analysis of web corpora.

At University of Paris Est, I mainly teach « Sociology of the internet », « Sociology of communication », « introduction to anthropology ».

I am proud to have been the supervisor of Thomas Jammet and Baptiste Kotras‘ PhDs in Sociology, and proud to superviseSébastien Shulz‘s PhD in Sociology.
