The Aude Danieli’s PhD in sociology studies the socio-technical phenomena of the smart electricity meters. With an approach based on “Science and Technology Studies” (STS), since 2013 she explores the socio-technical design and practices that shape the electricity infrastructure from laboratories to experiments. The research focuses on the design and maintenance of the electrical device and the crontroversies, technically speaking. The PhD is linked to the Laboratory Territories, Societies, Techniques (UPEM / CNRS/ENPC), in partnership with the Research Group on Energy Technology Company EDF Lab.
Communication : A social survey of a controversial smart electricity meter. Or the approach of social tensions between design issues and uses issues.

Thibault DANTEUR
Thibault Danteur is a postdoctoral fellow at the Universtity of Versailles Saint Quentin, in the Yvelines, France. His PhD was in sociology about economic and cultural globalization, focusing on hybridization processes in globalized industries such as retail stores firms or tourism. His current research aim to study the diffusion of ecological innovations. As a specialist of field inquiries, he applies various mixt methods, both quantitative and qualitative, to study representations and socio-economical issues linked to the cultural resistances and levers to the adoption of eco-mobility. In the context of his postdoctoral fellowship, his work is led in partnership with several institutional and industrial actors (ADEME, Renault, Bouygues, Alstom).

Léa Eynaud studied natural sciences and social sciences of the environment at Science Po Paris, Pierre et Marie Curie and the Freie Universität in Berlin. She has experience as a tutor in Sciences Po and did several internships within international institutions (United Nations Environment Program, IUCN) as well as in the research (Umr-Amure). Her PhD is financed by the French agency ADEME. It addresses the processes of urban re-appropriation of the commons in France and Germany. This research addresses four main arenas: research (both academic and non-academic), politics, law, as well as collective action. In the case of the latter, inquiry is led primarily on three sites: energy supply and/or production, urban agriculture and waste management.
