Senior researcher (Directeur de recherche) at Inria Lille - Nord Europe since september 2009, I am the scientific head of the Mjolnir team and the scientific officer (Délégué scientifique) of the research center.

Before working for Inria, I did a PhD thesis in Computer Science at LRI, I was a post-doctoral researcher at GMD Sankt Augustin and the University of Fribourg, and I was an Associate Professor (Maître de conférences) at Paris-Sud University — and a member of the in|situ| team — for eight years.

My research lies in the field of Human-Computer Interaction. I have published and served as organizing or program committee member in conferences such as ACM CHI, ACM UIST, IHM, ACM CSCW, ECSCW or ACM Multimedia. I have also co-organized four editions of the Forum on Tactile and Gestural Interaction.

Details concerning my background and research activities can be found in my detailed CV (in French).

In early 2014, I wrote two short texts (two pages each) that summarize the evolution of HCI as a research field and the directions I intend to pursue in the future.

I regularly post on Twitter and Instagram and occasionally on Tumblr.

A few upcoming, present or relatively recent news:

I know nothing or very little about rheology, hydraulic fracturing, planar graphs, or spatial geodesy...
