The diiP institute is governed by an ​Executive Committee that comprises the following scientists:

  • director: Themis Palpanas (Computer Science, University of Paris), is a senior member of French University Institute (IUF), a distinction that recognizes research excellence across all scientific disciplines. a professor in LIPADE, the computer science department of the University of Paris, and a director of the Data Intensive and Knowledge Oriented Systems (diNo) group. He is Member of the Board of Trustees of the VLDB Endowment, Associate Editor for VLDB 2019, Editor in Chief for the Big Data Research (BDR) journal, and Associate Editor for the Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering (TKDE) journal. His research is on problems related to online and offline big data analytics and machine learning applications, with a special focus on data series.
  • vice-director: Eric Chassande-Mottin​ (Astrophysics, University of Paris), is a CNRS researcher with the Gravitation team at laboratoire AstroParticule et Cosmologie (APC). He is interested in the detection of gravitational waves with Virgo and LIGO.
  • Jean-Michel Camadro​ (Biochemistry, University of Paris), is Directeur de Recherche in CNRS, and director of the Mitochondria, Metals and Oxidative Stress group in the biology research Institute Jacques-Monod of Paris Diderot University. His research interests include quantitative biology and modeling.
  • Barbara Hemforth​ (Cognitive Linguistics, University of Paris), is Directrice de Recherche at the CNRS, Laboratoire de Linguistique Formelle of Paris Diderot University. Starting on January 2020, she will serve as director of the Labex Empirical Foundations of Linguistics. Her research interests include experimental linguistics (neuroscientific and behavioral methods) and corpus analyses.
  • Alexandre Fournier​ (Geophysics, University of Paris), is a professor of geophysics at the Institut de physique du globe de Paris, and the scientific head of the S-CAPAD computing platform. His research interests comprise the modelling of the dynamics of planetary interiors and the application of data assimilation techniques to terrestrial magnetism.
  • Nicolas Sauger​ (Political Sciences, SciencesPo), is professor at the Sciences Po university, member of the Planning Committee of the Comparative Study of Electoral Systems, and member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the European Social Survey, and has been co-director of the team “Evaluation of Democracy” of the Interdisciplinary Laboratory for the Evaluation of Public Policies.

  • Christophe Cerin​ (Computer Science, University Sorbonne Paris Nord), is professor of computer science at University Sorbonne Paris Nord, and scientific head of the MAGI computing platform. His research interests include parallel computing, cloud computing, high performance computing, and big data.
  • Arnaud Bringé (INED), is a research ingeneer, head of statistic methods department at INED. His research fields are focused on duration model, multilevel datas, and statistical analysis on historical demography populations. He manages an open statistical seminar on applied statistical methods, which program and past sessions are available here. Activities on his department are available here.
  • Grégoire Borst (Psychology and neuroscience, University of Paris) is a Professor of developmental psychology and cognitive neuroscience of education. He is the director of the Laboratory of Child Development and Education (LaPsyDE, CNRS) and junior fellow of the IUF. His research focuses on the study of the neurocognitive processes involved in learning, in the development of children and adolescents and in media truth discernment (i.e., detection of fake news). 
  • Claire Mangeney​ (Chemist, University of Paris), is professor of chemistry and leader of the Nano Bio-Spectroscopy group in the Laboratory of Chemistry and Biochemistry (LCPBT). Her research is at the interface of surface chemistry, nanotechnology and biology, with a particular focus on the design of hybrid nanomaterials for biological-related applications and the development of spectroscopic tools for bioanalysis.
  • Professor Etienne Gayat (Medicine, University of Paris) is professor of medicine, specialized in anesthesiology, critical care and perioperative medicine. He is director of the team “Biotargets for cardiovascular dysfunction” within the Inserm unit 942. His research focuses on the exploitation of physiological signals from patients in critical situations. He currently holds a chair in “Massive Data and Artifical Intelligence in Health” sponsored by the AP-HP and Inria.
