Prodig : Pôle de Recherche pour l’Organisation et la Diffusion de l’Information Géographique (UMR 8586)

Malika MADELIN is an associate professor at University Paris Diderot and member of the UMR Prodig Laboratory. Her research focuses on fine scale climatology (urban climate, air pollution, vinegrape-cimate relationships) with an extensive use of digital tools (data treatment and visualization). She also investigates other fields (real estate, social networks) to highlight the methodological question they raise, in particular that of local territorial information.

LVMT : Laboratoire Ville Mobilité Transport (UMR T 9403)

Florent LE NECHET is a Senior Lecturer at Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée University (UPEM), a researcher at the Laboratoire Ville Mobilité Transport (LVMT) and a lecturer at the Paris School of Urban Planning (EUP). An Engineer and a geographer, his research focuses on measuring and modeling the links between territorial spatial organization and mobility practices. Its tools combine data analysis, including massive location data, and multi-agent modeling. As a teacher at the Paris School of Urban Planning, he is co-responsible for the Master 2 “Transport, Mobility” course.

SilhouetteThomas LOUAIL
Géographie-Cités (UMR 8504)

Thomas LOUAIL holds a permanent research position at the CNRS Institute for Humanities and Social Sciences (INSHS) and he currently works at Géographie-cités in Paris. He graduated in artificial intelligence at the university Pierre and Marie Curie (2005) and then did a PhD in computer science at the university of Evry (2010). From 2012 to 2016 he was a postdoc in various computer science and statistical physics units (Institut de recherche en Informatique de Toulouse [IRIT], Institut de Physique Théorique [CEA], and Institute for cross-disciplinary physics and complex systems [IFISC]). His work mainly focuses on the uses of pervasive anonymized individual data to measure, model and hopefully better understand social dynamics. He is particularly interested in the determinants of our spatial practices.
