I am a researcher in HCI (Human Computer Interaction), currently a Leverhulme Trust fellow and co-leader of the Bristol Interaction Group (UK). I spent two years at the Hasso Plattner Institute (Germany) and did my Ph.D at Telecom ParisTech group (France). Future interactive devices will vary in form factors and technologies. My research aims at shaping the software and hardware of these future devices. In particular, I focus on non-planar and self-actuated devices. I studied touch on spherical surfaces, I built a force feedback touchscreen that translates the user’s finger and I currently design shape changing devices. My research approach is a blend of theory, experimentation, and software/hardware design. Through my work, I intent to help designers create the best possible interfaces and devices we will soon have in our hands.
