About Me

My research focuses on gestural interaction and command selection. My goal is to design simple interactions that users can learn and perform efficiently without hindering their expressivity. I am also interested in understanding how users memorize and what mechanisms can be used to help them in their task. I focus my work on designing novel interaction techniques and exploring new mechanisms to help users memorize command selections. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Human-Computer Interaction and Interactive Technologies Lab in Saarland University working with Jürgen Steimle. I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science focused on Human-Computer Interaction from Télécom ParisTech. This Ph.D. was supervised by Eric Lecolinet from LTCI - Télécom ParisTech and Olivier Chapuis from the LRI and Inria. Here is my CV.
