Théophile develops Institut Montaigne's research programme on digital issues. The programme looks at the challenges associated with the collection and processing of data in European societies, ranging from social cohesion to information security. His own work focuses on communication technologies and the transformations of the public space in France. It seeks to explore new models of governance for digital technologies.
Before joining Institut Montaigne, Théophile worked for start-ups at the intersection of media and technology (a media-monitoring tool and a content-provider platform) in London and Los Angeles. Théophile graduated from the London School of Economics and from the USC Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism, where he followed the double degree program ‘Global Media and Communications’.
