I am an associate professor at the University of Lille since 2011, Habilité à Diriger des Recherches since 2022. I conduct my research in the LOKI team, part of Inria Lille - Nord Europe and CRIStAL, CNRS UMR 9189. Before this, I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Dynamic Graphics Group of the University of Toronto under supervision by Ravin Balakrishnan, and post-doctoral research at Telecom ParisTech supervised by Éric Lecolinet. I obtained my Ph.D. at the University of Lorraine and I was supervised by Benoît Martin and Isabelle Pecci.

Research interests

My research field is Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Most of my research projects focus on input interaction techniques and devices, haptic feedback, and their combination. More generally, I am interested in the notion of user control over interactive systems. My objective is to use the best of human skills and computer capabilities for the design of efficient interactive systems.



Teaching materials for my current courses are available here, and on the department page.
