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 interdisciplinary research in the field of human-computer interaction (HCI) where I study human-centred approaches to machine learning in art applications, movement learning and health. My recent work has focused on interactive and collaborative machine learning with the general public, artists or domain experts, the use of ML as an aid to learning, human-IA trust, and the study of practices and politics of AI in the creative and cultural sectors.

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.
