I am a CNRS researcher in political science at Pacte, Sciences-Po Grenoble. My research work straddles sociology of law and policy analysis, with a particular interest in the genesis, institutionalization and uses of expertise and socio-technical systems in policy on justice, law and order. After writing a book on judicial expertise, I turned to analysis of CCTV, electronic monitoring and court hearings videoconferencing. I have also worked on relations between the law, the judiciary and politics, in particular on the judicialization of politics - in partnership with Jacques Commaille.

I have authored with Thierry Delpeuch and Claire de Galembert a handbook, Sociologie du Droit et de la Justice (Armand Colin, 2014). I am a member of the Manajustice project led by Cécile Vigour and funded by the Aquitaine region ; and the JUSTIREP project funded by the GIP Mission de recherche Droit et justice. I am currently preparing an habilitation thesis (accreditation to supervise research) which is focused on the question of judgement.

My work has been published in several books and a large number of articles in French and international peer-reviewed journals: L’Année sociologique (2009); British Journal of Criminology (2011); Champ Pénal/Penal Field (2010); Critique Internationale (2010); Déviance & Société (2013); Droit et Société (2010, 2005, 2000);  Droit et Cultures (2011); Ethnographiques.org (2013); Journal of Electronic Communication (2013); Les Cahiers de la Justice (2011); Policy & Internet (2016); Quaderni (2011); Research on Language and Social Interaction (2010); Réseaux (2007); Revista de Ciencias Sociales (2017); Surveillance & society (2013).

Lastly I am the co-editor of the French journal Droit et Société http://ds.hypotheses.org/category/revue-droit-et-societe with Professor Pierre Brunet (University Paris 1-Sorbonne).
