Title: Ph.D. student
Advisor: Wendy Mackay, Sarah Fdili Alaoui & Baptiste Caramiaux

I am a doctoral student in the ex)situ team, under the direction of Wendy Mackay, Sarah Fdili Alaoui and Baptiste Caramiaux.

I am currently working on the partnership between humans and computers in the contexts of movement acquisition. I am particularly interested in supporting motor skill acquisition in creative practices such as dance. My principal research interest is to understand how to design tools that could be used by dancers in a pedagogical context. I am currently working with professional contemporary dancers in order to understand techniques used during their training and the mechanisms that appear while learning dance movements.

I have an Master degree in computer science, specialization in Human-Computer Interaction from Paul Sabatier University and the Ecole Nationale de l'Aviation Civile (Toulouse) .
