This page summarizes information about the courses and training events that I give, mostly on social and economic network analysis as well as agent-based computer simulation for the social sciences.

Upcoming one-off training events


Regular courses

At the University of Insubria (Varese, Italy), I teach Research Methods to first-year PhD students in economics and theory of decision (2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2021-22, in English). The 2019-20 and 2020-21 courses were canceled due to the health crisis.

In Paris, France, I teach Sociology of Social Networks to EHESS/ENS Master’s students as part of the Quantifier en Sciences Sociales option in the Social Sciences master’s programme (2014-15, 2015-16, 2016-17, 2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22, and 2022-23, in French). The course was online the last time, and is now back to in-person format.

In Palaiseau, France, I also teach Social and Economic Network Science to master’s level students at ENSAE (with Floriana Gargiulo, 2018-19, 2019-20, 2020-21, 2021-22, and 2022-23, in French). Also at ENSAE, I teach Data Ethics (in French, first edition in 2022-23) and Ethics and Responsibility in Data Science (in English, starting 2022-23).

In Toulouse, France, I teach Ethics of Social and Digital Data to master’s students (2021-22 and 2022-23).

Previously in Palaiseau, I was a tutor for students preparing a project for an incubated start-up at Telecom Paris (2017-18, 2018-19, 2019-20, in French and English).

Past events

– At a CNRS-sponsored thematic winter school on Agent-based Modeling for Sociologists, I gave two talks on network simulation models and mixed methods (Fréjus, France, 21-26 November 2021).

– At a CNRS-sponsored thematic summer school on Analysis of social networks and complexity (Cargèse, Corsica, 24-28 September 2018), I gave a talk on agent-based models and simulation of networks (in French).

– At the CBNA Summer School in Social Network Analysis 2018 (University of Greenwich, London, 13-22 June 2018), I gave a half-day workshop on Ego-Network Analysis (20 June 2018).

Introduction to Netlogo and agent-based models of networks, one-day workshop at the EUSN 2017 conference (Mainz, Germany, 26 September 2017), EUSN 2016 conference (Paris, 14 June 2016) and at the XXXV Sunbelt Conference of the International Network for Social Network Analysis (Brighton, 23 June 2015), with Yasaman Sarabi.

Using mixed-methods in social network analysis, one-day workshop (London, 13 January 2015 and 8 January 2014, with Alessio D’Angelo and Louise Ryan).

– At the University of Greenwich, London, in June 2015 (and 2014 and 2013), I taught a one-week intensive course on Doing Research with Social Networks: Tools, Theories and Applications, as part of a more comprehensive Summer School in social network analysis. I was accompanied by Yasaman Sarabi who was in charge of most of the hands-on exercises with dedicated software (UCINET and Netdraw); on the last day, Francesca Pallotti gave a special session on exponential random graph models.

– Slightly different versions of the above course have been offered at the University of Lund, Sweden (2015) and University of Tel Aviv, Israel (2014).

– I gave several one-day training workshops on “Introduction to Social Network Analysis“, some of which with Yasaman Sarabi, both at Greenwich (2011, 2012, 2013), and as pre-conference workshops at the UKSNA conference (2011, 2012) and Sunbelt conference (2013, 2014).

– In 2011, I contributed to the organisation of a Doctoral Summer School on Social Networks and the Network Society (in French) on the Ile of Porquerolles, for EHESS and the Institute Mines-Telecom.
