About me

I am Associate Professor (HDR) at the University of Toulouse 3 (France) and head of the Elipse research group (IRIT Lab). My research is dedicated to designing novel interaction techniques in the field of ubiquitous computing. My most recent publications cover interactions with unconventional displays, immersive environments, and mobile devices.
