iGEM TIES (Teams IntEraction Study)

In this project we map the social interaction networks of scientific teams participating to the iGEM scientific competition. We collect high resolution team interaction data from digital traces, collaboration monitoring, and surveys to study the network patterns underlying team performance and learning.

The biological networks driving ageing

We apply network science approaches to understand and model the dynamics of gene networks driving ageing in Drosophila and Humans. In particular, the project focuses on describing ageing as a propagation of network failures in the multi-layer interactome. The project is supported by a French national ANR JCJC funding.

Quantifying the organizational patterns of Citizen Science projects

In this EU H2020 project, we use digital traces to understand what makes citizen science projects succesful and how citizen scientists can provide reliable data for tracking the progress towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals and how grassroots innovation can help achieve such progress.

Designing recommender systems to enhance collective intelligence

In this project funded by a NESTA Collective Intelligence grant, we develop a network-based recommender system for the open science social platform Just One Giant Lab to match contributors to needs, and explore its impact on community self-organization.


The Datao initiative aims to understand collective experiences and to enable interactions between science, self-research experience, learning and nature. We collaborate with various NGOs and small organisations, such as Falling Walls Foundation (Germany), Dresden Complex Systems lab (Germany), (Kazachstan), Praxis Hub (France). The current collaboration with Aino is based on working on data resulting from collaborative work on environmental design. The platform allows experts and the community to work together in a united virtual space.
