Guillaume Cabanac is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Toulouse, France. He holds a PhD (2008) and a habilitation degree (2016) from the University of Toulouse. His interdisciplinary research on the quantitative study of science is at the crossroads between Information Retrieval, Digital Libraries, and Scientometrics.
