I am a reader at the Creative Computing Institute at the University of the Arts London and an associate professor at LISN-Université Paris Saclay and Ex)Situ INRIA research team in interaction design, human-computer Interaction, and dance. I am a choreographer, a dancer, and a Laban Movement Analyst.
Before my current position, I was a researcher at the School of Interactive Arts+Technology at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver, within the MovingStories project. I hold a PhD in Art and Science from the University Paris-Sud 11 and the IRCAM-Centre Pompidou and LIMSI-CNRS research institutes. I have an MSc from the University of Joseph Fourier and an Engineering Degree from ENSIMAG in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, and about 30 years of training in ballet and contemporary dance.
I am interested in intersecting research in interaction design with dance-making and choreography. I have been involved in many art and science projects, collaborating with dancers, visual artists, computer scientists, and designers to create interactive dance performances, and interactive installations, as well as systems for supporting choreography and dance learning and documentation.
