I am a research scientist (Chargé de Recherche 1ère classe) at Inria, in the Loki group. Prior to that, I did was a post-doctoral researcher at the University College London and at the University of Canterbury (New-Zealand). I did my Ph.D. at Télécom ParisTech, and passed my Master Degree at UPMC in Artificial Intelligence with a speciality in HCI.
My research interests are in the areas of human-computer interaction (HCI), with additional focus on designing interactive systems and interaction techniques that can be easily discovered and learned by novice users, while still yielding high performence to more practiced users. If you are curious about my research, giving a look at the selected publications below should provide a decent overview.
