I am a postdoctoral researcher in Human-Computer Interaction in the ISMM group with Frédéric Bevilacqua at IRCAM Centre Pompidou. I received my Ph.D. from Télécom ParisTech, under the supervision of Olivier Rioul, Michel Beaudouin-Lafon and Yves Guiard. My Ph.D. thesis applies information theory to capture the uncertainty in the user-computer communication process and explore the notion of combining human intelligence with machine power. Before my Ph.D., I did my master thesis with Bernd Ploderer at Microsoft Research Centre for Social Natural User Interfaces at University of Melbourne on sleep tracking technologies.
