Thomas Tari is a sociologist of knowledge. He graduated from EHESS and holds a PhD from the University of Paris-Est. He joined Sciences Po in 2015, to participate in the FORCCAST programme, of which he has been appointed director in 2019, until the end of the programme in 2020. He is now the head of the Centre for the exploration of controversies. Thomas produces contents and develops new pedagogical formats concerning the production of knowledge in society. After studying the emergence of a research field in bioenergy (PhD thesis, 2015), he is now exploring the diversity of methods used to count the dead in humanitarian crises, at the médialab. He is teaching a seminar on this topic at the Paris School of International Affairs. He coordinates the "Digital Controversies" unit of the Executive Master in Digital Humanities (executive education). He also co-designed and teaches the great course 'Science and society' for Sciences Po College, and coordinates the pedagogical experimentation 'Digital Culture'.
