I’m a junior lecturer in contemporary history and digital humanities at the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland. I hold a PhD from the University of Lausanne and am specialized in network analysis and data visualization. My research focuses on the history of international organizations, the League of Nations and the history of intellectual cooperation. I’m developing methods for the structural analysis of large bodies of international archives and am particularly interested in the graphic and synthetic representation of these massive data.
This website shows, however, that my activity goes beyond these strict categories: I like to experiment with ways to play with data, be it historical, statistical or from social networks. I like to share around these practices of research and experimentation, considering that the digital humanities are a kind of craft, both exciting and imperfect. This site has been a very active blog in the past, it is now mainly a way to talk about my research and centralize my scientific productions, but nothing prevents it from becoming so again one day.
