My research lies at the confluence of computer science (Human-Computer Interaction) and cognitive science (Cognitive Modeling/User Modeling) and focuses on designing adaptive, engaging and supportive interactive systems.
More specifically, I focus on the design of novel interactive systems capable of adaptation to the context (mostly to users). My research mainly focuses on two complementary aspects: user modeling (human activity modelling and analysis on users’ engagement) and interaction with users (design of motivational affordances, plasticity and adaptive interactive systems).
I received my PHD in computer science from the University of Sherbrooke in Canada (at Domus Lab) and in cognitive science from INP Grenoble (at TIMC lab) in 2008. I then did a two-years postdoc at University of Grenoble (LIG, HCI research group).
