I am an interaction designer and Human-Computer Interaction researcher. I am currently a Post-Doc at ex)situ (Inria), working on improving digital tools for graphic and interaction designers.
I just completed my PhD entitled “Designing Design Tools” under the direction of Michel Beaudouin-Lafon and Wendy Mackay.
I am president of the francophone association for young design researchers: Design en Recherche.

Research Interests
I work as a design researcher using HCI methods to understand how designers work and how we can rethink creativity support tools to better support their practices. I articulate my research around three axes: empirical, theoretical and design work. I also develop and explore novel methodologies for conducting design research and bridging the gap between empirical and design work.
