I am a CNRS Researcher in Movement based Human-Computer Interaction at LIMSI (CNRS, Université Paris-Sud Université Paris-Saclay) within the AMI Group (Architectures and Models for Interaction). I hold a PhD in computer science from Université Pierre et Marie Curie, that I completed in the {Sound Music Movement} Interaction team at Ircam. I am a member of the steering committee of the International Conference on Movement & Computing (MOCO).

Research Interests:

  • Gesture-based & Whole-body Interaction
  • Expressive Movement Modeling
  • User-Centered Machine Learning for Interaction Design
  • Movement-Sound Interactions for the Performing Arts
  • Auditory Feedback for Movement Learning

  • I have a fully-funded PhD position available on the ANR Project ELEMENT (Enabling Learnability in Embodied Movement Interaction), co-supervised with Yacine Bellik, starting Dec18-jan19 (duration 3 years). Topic: Adaptive Computational Models of Human Movement to Support Learnability in Embodied Interaction. Details and how to apply.
  • MOCO'19 will be held in Tempe, AZ, USA in October, 2019!
