About

_mg_1191My name is Paola Tubaro and I am associate research professor (Chargé de Recherche) at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS, in French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique). Trained as an economist and gradually morphed into a sociologist, I am at a major computer science lab, the Laboratoire de Recherche en Informatique on the Saclay campus just south of Paris. My mission is to facilitate inter-disciplinary dialogue to leverage today’s growing capacity to collect and analyze data at both small and large scale and to model complex systems, to reveal yet-unknown patterns of individual and group behaviors.

I teach the sociology of social networks at ENS/EHESS, and social and economic network science at ENSAE (with Floriana Gargiulo). I am a member of the Board of MSH Paris-Saclay, of the Programme Committee of the DataIA Institute, and of the Local Committee of Institut Pascal. I used to be a member of the Board of Revue française de sociologie, and am now part of its Associate Board.

I currently organize (with Emmanuel Lazega) the main international conference in social network analysis, the “Sunbelt“, which will take place in Paris in June 2020.

Until December 2015, I was at the Faculty of Business of the University of Greenwich, London. I was a Reader (in the British traditional academic career ladder, the equivalent of a tenured Associate Professor) in economic sociology. I directed the doctoral programme (PhD, MPhil and Master’s by Research), I supervised three PhD theses, and I coordinated research within the department of international business and economics. I was a visiting professor at Greenwich over 2016-18.

In Britain, I am also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy; I used to be an external examiner at University College London, Institute of Education; and I am still the co-convenor of the Social Networks Analysis Group of British Sociological Association, and a member of the Associate Editorial Board of the journal Sociology.

In Italy, I am visiting professor at the department of economics of the University of Insubria, where I teach a Research Methods course to first-year PhD students.
