Lionel Villard, research group and authors presentation

Assistant professor at ESIEE paris (École Supérieure d'Ingénieurs en Électronique et Électrotechnique) on the campus of Paris Est University. My research interests have a strong methodological dimension, and are designed to support the theoretical development of my research team, which is working in the field of Science and Technology Studies.

I love traveling and taking time to catch colors and situations with my camera. here-and-there-pics presents some these photographs, a kind of kaleidoscopic view of specific moments, without filter, found here and there, and along roads or cities.
