Marc Santolini is a team leader at CRI research (Paris), a visiting researcher at the Barabasi Lab (Network Science Institute at Northeastern University, Boston), and the co-founder and Director of Research of Just One Giant Lab (JOGL), a nonprofit initiative aimed at developing decentralized open science challenges using smart digital tools.

Trained as a theoretical physicist at ENS Paris and Princeton University, he developed a strong interest in the universal organisational properties observed in real-world networks in various domains from biology to social sciences, leading him to work as a postdoc at the Barabasi Lab in Northeastern Univeristy and Harvard Medical School. He now leads a team at the Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity in Paris to unravel how communities innovate, learn and solve complex problems using network approaches on large empirical datasets, applying this knowledge in JOGL to develop algorithms fostering collective intelligence for social impact.
