I am a postodoctoral researcher at Imperial College London, using large-scale computational modeling to study the impact of human data on digital societies. My research directions include the limits of privacy and anonymity in the modern age, challenging the technical and legal adequacy of current de-identification techniques; the reliability of machine learning for stylometry in social media; the rise of pricing algorithms in online markets. My work has been covered in the New York Times, The Guardian, CNBC, The Telegraph, Forbes, El Pais, Scientific American, BBC.

I received my PhD at the Université catholique de Louvain in Belgium in 2019. I was previously a research fellow affiliated with the F.R.S.-FNRS (Fund for Scientific Research), a visiting researcher at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 2014 and 2015, and studied computational social science and information architecture at the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon.
