I am assistant professor at the University of Lille 1, and I do my research at Cristal in the Mjolnir team. Previously I was Postdoc researcher at the University of Toronto, in the DGP group. I am interested in haptic interaction (tactile and force feedback). In the past I worked on tanglible interaction for education, especially on techniques using digital pens.


I am found of comupter science, in either theoric or applied aspects.
I am also a music lover. I practice drums and guitars, and my favorites styles are Rock, Hard rock and Heavy metal (see my website Rock n' Heavy). I also deeply appreciate movies original soundtracks.
I have always been fascinated by astronomy. I made a section to show my pictures and observations.
