Dr. C. Levallois (Clement)
Clement Levallois, trained as an economist in Ecole Normale Superieure de Cachan in France (2001), turned to the study of the recent relationships between economics and biology (PhD, Universite de Lyon, 2008). A member of the EconomiX-Cachan (H2S) group directed by Pr. Philippe Fontaine, he is particularly interested in the interplay between theoretical science and its cultural context. His first publication (2009) provides a reconsideration of a founding article in evolutionary economics by Armen Alchian, in the new light of the Cold War context, history of statistics and new biographical elements.
After two years in visiting positions at the London School of Economics and City University London (2007-2008), Clement’s current research at VKS focused on neuroeconomics: its recent emergence and its social meaning.
Clement Levallois is currently Assistant Professor at EMLYON Business School in France. Clement studied economics and management before turning to history of science, with a special interest for post-WWII social sciences and their relations to biology. Since 2008, he trained in computational methods such as text mining and network analysis and applies these frameworks to tackle classic research questions under a new light. Clement published in History of Political Economy,Science in Context and Nature Reviews Neuroscience.
