Directrice de Recherche at CNRS in economics, at LAMSADE since 2015, I am interested in using complex systems technics (mainly agent-based) to study environmental issues.

My general approach is related to the notion of POLICY ANALYTICS, trying to re-think decision support in the context of public policy (please refer to my current projects and the seminar of our policy analytics project in LAMSADE).

In this perspective I am interested in

  • self-organized activities of non-profit organisations (particularly in food chains), their shape, dynamics of emergence and their implication on democratic processes
  • conflicts in the context of environmental controversies. in particular in contexts of sanitary risks, via the encounters of arguments, from multiple points of view.
  • in a more general context: the role and place of scientific knowledge in democratic processes
  • interest in the relation between art (singular point of view) and science (attempt to attain objective knowledge) – in particular in a seminar dealing about sustainable development with scientists and artists, at Iméra, Marseille


My past interest was more concentrated on the use of Agent-Based Simulations for analysing social complexity (environmental, organizational and market issues). I have always been interested in methodology issues.

Please consult my publications. (more general : ResearchGate, Hal-SHS)
