A short presentation
The NET LAB is a collaborative (draft) project that is intended to uncover reachable and relevant data in different fields and various institutional contexts, helping students to develop their postgraduate projects like Master's thesis or Master's research/data analyst internships. Facilitating network data exploration, analysis and visualization, the NET LAB constitutes an original space for students who consider the relational embeddedness of economic life (behaviours, actions, outcomes) in networks.
Using available and/or original network datasets, the NET LAB is dedicated to apply plural social network approaches in order to provide original empirical evidences in divers contexts (particularly in Emerging and Developing countries, but not only), answering to socio-economics, institutional and political economy complex issues.
The NET LAB is a virtual open-lab and cooperative space for anyone in social sciences working on dataset.
He is economist at Université Paris Cité, researcher at UMR Ladyss (Laboratory for Social Dynamics and Recomposition of Spaces) and member of the Global Research Institute of Paris. His work focuses on the relational embeddedness of individuals, communities and organizations, mainly in emerging and developing countries. At the intersection of socioeconomics, development economics and political economy, he is particularly interested in labour market institutions, the relationships between interpersonal networks and the variety of job quality, the relational mechanisms of resilience for vulnerable households and the construction of public policies via inter-organizational networks. His research is based on quantitative or qualitative data, from first-hand surveys preferably, and adopts mixed methods combining social network analysis, applied econometrics and quantified stories.
