I am a Research Director, Classe Exceptionnelle (DR0), equivalent to a tenured full professor. I direct the ex)situ research group in Human-Computer Interaction at Inria, Paris-Saclay, and the Université Paris-Saclay (formerly Université Paris-Sud). I teach in the HCID and HCI international Masters degree programs at the university.

I served for over three years as Vice President of Research for the Computer Science Department at the University of Paris-Sud, after which I spent two years as a Visiting Professor at Stanford University in the Computer Science Department. I received my Ph.D. from MIT and have served as Chair of ACM/SIGCHI, co-editor–in-chief of the journal IJHCS, was general chair of our flagship conference CHI’13, and received the ACM/SIGCHI Lifetime Achievement Award for Service this year. I am also a recipient of a European Research Council Advanced Grant, a five-year personal multi-million euro grant. My current research interests include co-adaptive instruments, tangible computing and multi-disciplinary, participatory design methods.
