CNRS researcher at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR), Sorbonne Université in Paris. I am a member of the HCI Sorbonne group

I conduct research in human-computer interaction (HCI), examining how machine learning (or artificial intelligence) algorithms can be used in various fields such as performing arts, health or pedagogy. I am particularly interested in learning technologies when they are integrated with communities of practice. In particular, I am seeing technology as a reflective tool that allows people to question their practice, learn, and express themselves. As a group, we are exploring various methodologies and present our research outcomes in scientific articles, presentations and artistic creations.

Short Bio

I am currently a CNRS researcher (CRCN) at ISIR, Sorbonne Université in Paris, in the HCI Sorbonne group. I received a PhD in Computer Music from University Pierre et Marie Curie and IRCAM in 2012. I have worked at Goldsmiths College, University of London and McGill University, as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow. I joined CNRS (CR1) in 2018 at LRI (now LISN), Université Paris-Saclay. Since 2015, I have been a senior researcher then consultant at Mogees ltd. I am involved in an European endeavour studying the use of AI in the Creative and Cultural sectors. Finally, I am collaborating on art projects, being an associate member of the Fronte Vaccuo collective.
