Florian Raphael Cafiero

PSL University

Based in


I am a Fellow in Artificial Intelligence for the Humanities and Social Sciences at Paris Sciences et Lettres University (PSL) and a researcher at Centre Jean-Mabillon – Ecole nationale des chartes. I give my lectures at École nationale des chartes – PSL, Ecole Normale Supérieure – PSL, and Dauphine-PSL. My research focuses on computational social science and digital humanities.
Since 2019, I am a member of the “Critical thinking” group of France’s Ministry of National Education Scientific Council. I have also been a principal investigator for a project on the online presence of cults held by the Interministerial Mission of Vigilance and Combat against Sectarian Drifts (MIVILUDES). After a stay as a visiting scholar at Columbia University in 2022, I have been part in 2023 of the International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) run by the U.S. Department of State.

All my scientific publications and my resume are available on the CNRS open archive HAL. The code for most of my projects is posted on Github.
With my colleague Jean-Baptiste Camps, we recently published a book regarding authorship attribution and forensic linguistics, Affaires de style (Le Robert). This follows our work regarding Molière authorship dispute, or our study on QAnon for the New York Times.
