I've also been a member of the network of experts of Etalab, ​the open data Prime Minister agency in France, since its inception in 2013. I hold a PhD in Philosophy from Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne (summa cum laude). My thesis, defended in April 2013, was dedicated to the Philosophy of the Web. Previously, I was president of Adrastia association (2017-2019), between October 2014 and August 2017 I held a research position at Inria​ (​WIMMICS​)​, where I had previously initiated the French DBpedia project between 2011 and 2013 with the Ministry of Culture and Wikimedia France. During the same period, I was the lead architect of the Fondation des Galeries Lafayette ​for contemporary art (Lafayette Anticipation) forthcoming digital platform (early 2014 - Dec. 2016).
