Lionel Villard is a senior lecturer at ESIEE-Paris, researcher at LISIS and head of Platform CorText. His research focuses on data mining, scientometrics and data visualizations, dealing with geographical agglomeration and knowledge dynamics in the development of high-tech fields (e.g. nanotechnology, biotechnology). Its core domains of expertise are: processing large volumes of data (publications, patents, press articles and financial data) collected from heterogeneous sources in structured databases; their analysis, especially when there include a Geographical dimension (mapping through GIS...); quantitative indicators and social network analysis. These tools and methods built as part of his research, provide necessary backgrounds to develop analysis of scientific and technological fields. He is currently an active member of the European Infrastructure project RISIS (Research Infrastructure for Science and Innovation Studies).
