Camille Roth
Faculty / CNRS
Camille is tenured full research scientist at CNRS in computer science after having been Associate Professor in sociology at Sciences Po Paris. His research focuses on the description and modeling of socio-semantic systems, in particular the digital public space and scientific communities, using Social Network Analysis and Natural Language Processing. He founded the team in 2012.
Telmo Menezes
Postdoc / CNRS
Telmo is specialized in Artificial Intelligence and its applications to the Social Sciences. He is broadly interested in the interplay between human and artificial intelligence in the digital public space. His research is currently focused on representations of knowledge for claim and belief propagation analysis.
Antoine Mazières
Postdoc / CNRS
Antoine is a post-doctoral researcher in the computational social science team of Centre Marc Bloch. He has a mixed background of social sciences, computer science and statistics. His most recent published works were on history of artificial intelligence and the use of machine learning in discrimination studies.


Jérémie Poiroux
PhD student / CNRS
Currently PhD student in sociology at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Paris) and at Centre Marc Bloch (Berlin), he study the design and impact of algorithms in the organisations.
Katrin Herms
PhD student / CNRS
Katrin pursues an interdisciplinary PhD project in sociology linking social network analysis of polarized Internet communities with face-to-face Interviews. Her main interests are discourse analysis and social dynamics emerging around political issues in France and Germany.
Jonathan St-Onge
PhD student / CNRS
A former philosopher of science and cognitive scientist, Jonathan St-Onge now purses a PhD in computational social science. His research focuses on the structure and dynamics of socio-semantic systems in digital niches using a mix of network theory, probabilistic programming, and natural language processing.
Dougal Shakespeare
PhD student / RECORDS
PhD student researching the role of algorithmic guidance on music streaming platforms as part of the ANR-funded project, RECORDS. His research focuses on exploring differentiations between algorithmic and organic music consumption behaviours, tracing the degree to which commonly deployed filtering algorithms may expand or rather, constrain the diversity of one's music preference.
Romain Avouac
Administrateur de l'INSEE in training
Romain works as a trainee public statistician at the French statistical institute. As a research assistant for a year at the CMB, he focuses on developing NLP approaches that go beyond classical distributional approaches in order to better assess the semantic similarity between actors' online positions.
Quentin Villermet
MSc & Engineering student / Lyon 1

Master's student in Artificial Intelligence, Quentin's interests include bio-inspired AI, statistics and network infrastructure. As an intern at the CMB, he works on music recommendation algorithms and their impact on the listener's practices.

Jonas Stein
Master‘s student / Utrecht University
Jonas studies Sociology and Social Research with a focus on agent-based simulation and social network analysis. He is interested in how diverse communities impact individual and group outcomes. For his research project at CMB, Jonas analyzes user confinement in Twitter networks.
