My research interests lie in the field of Human Computer Interaction. I study how gestural interaction can facilitate the use of interactive systems that are out of reach.
I have explored how gestural interaction can increase the interactive expressiveness of familiar devices such as remote controls. I have also investigated how users can use their abdomen as an interactive surface to interact with their mobile devices in mobile situations. I am also interested in the perception and the design of haptic feedback for touchless (or mid-air) and tactile gestural interaction.
I am currently a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of Glasgow in the M.I.G. group under the supervision of Stephen Brewster. I am currently investigating the perception of ultrasonic haptic feedback for touchless gestual interaction.
I hold a Ph.D. degree in Computer Sciences specialized in Human Computer Interaction from Telecom Paristech. It was supervised by Eric Lecolinet and Yves Guiard in the in the V.I.A. group. Previously, I have graduated with a Master of Science in Human Computer Interaction from Paul Sabatier University and the french National Engineering School of Civil Aviation (E.N.A.C). I have also worked for companies and research labs on different topics such as personnal information sharing for E-government applications, tangible interaction on interactive tabletop for aging people and tangible interaction for museum entertainment.
This is a prototype of an entertainment software dedicated to the visualization of a picture collection from the Pic du Midi.
While browsing through azimuth allows to watch pictures at taken at different hours of the day, browsing through altitude allows to watch pictures from different days. Visitors control the sphere rotation thanks to a tangible artefact.
It was developed using MOGRE and ARToolkit in C#. This project is the result of an intership at I.R.I.T in 2007.
I have been a teaching assistant in different courses mostly related to human computer interaction field.
