Prof. Dr. Paola Tubaro

Fellow of the European Academy of Sociology


Paola Tubaro is research professor (Directrice de Recherche) in sociology and technology at the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS, in French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique). Trained as an economist before getting interested in sociology, she is part of a major computer science lab, the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire des Sciences du Numérique (LISN) on the Saclay campus just south of Paris. Her research is inter-disciplinary and leverages synergies between sociology, network science, machine learning and artificial intelligence. She is currently researching the place of human labour in the global production networks of artificial intelligence, and the social conditions of digital platform work in French- and Spanish-speaking countries. She has also extensively published in the fields of data methodologies and research ethics. Paola Tubaro teaches the sociology of social networks at ENS/EHESS, and social and economic network science at ENSAE. She used to be a member of the Editorial Board of Revue française de sociologie, and is now part of the Associate Board. Until December 2015, she was a Reader in economic sociology at the Faculty of Business of the University of Greenwich, London, where she also directed the doctoral programme. In Britain, she is also a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy, the co-convenor of the Social Networks Analysis Group of British Sociological Association, and a member of the Associate Editorial Board of the journal Sociology. In Italy, she is visiting professor at the department of economics of the University of Insubria, where she teaches a Research Methods course to first-year PhD students.
