Alumna of the ENS, agrégée in economics and social sciences and doctor in art history, I currently direct the ENS-PSL Observatoire des humanités numériques. 

Field of research

My research relies on the tools of digital humanities to analyze the history of the art market and preference systems over a long period of time.

In my art history dissertation, I built a corpus of more than 2,000 Parisian public auction catalogs between 1830 and 1939 - 216,445 paintings, drawings and sculptures, 60,466 art objects and 9,165 antiques - which I studied using computational data analysis tools: statistics, econometrics, digital mapping, textometry and network analysis.

I founded the GeoMAP, DatArt, and Digital Viau projects, and I co-direct IMAGO and MSS

Since 2019, I teach digital humanities at ENS-PSL, in the introductory course, in intensive training and, since 2021, in collective project coaching
