I am an Assistant Professor (MCF) in the Department of Computer Engineering, UFR Sciences & Technologies, UEVE, Université Paris Saclay (France), conducting my research within the IRA2 (Interaction, Réalité Augmentée, Robotique Ambiante) team, at the IBISC Laboratory.

I received my PhD in Human Computer Interaction from the University of Nantes (France) in 2009.

Previously, I worked as a research and teaching assistant at Ecole des Mines de Nantes and at LS2N (former IRCCyN), in the Robotics group.

I worked also as a postdoctoral associate at Tufts University in the Ergonomics in Remote Environments Laboratory (EREL) and then as a research associate in the Interactive Surgical Systems Laboratory (ISSyL) at Harvard Medical School.
