My current research focuses on the forms of digital consumer guidance. Inside the ANR RECORDS project, I examine the uses and interpretations that listeners make of automated recommendation tools, according to the contexts of use and to their musical culture. Another stream of my research focuses on digital devices for consumer ecologization (carbon footprint calculators, product recommendation applications, facebook groups) and the ways in which they accompany the recomposition of daily consumption practices. My teaching at Télécom Paris currently focuses on the sociology of digital technology and on the environmental issues of digital technology.
