Interaction designer and researcher, I develop creative hardware and software experiences that bring technology closer to human nature. I lead the Resilient Futures group at De Vinci Innovation Center, which is dedicated to make our technology and society more sustainable.

Previously postdoctoral researcher at Saarland University and PhD student at Télécom Paris and HCI La Sorbonne. Get my Resume.

Eyecam

2021

What if seeing devices looked like us? Eyecam is a prototype exploring the potential future design of sensing devices. Eyecam is a webcam shaped like a human eye that can see, blink, look around and observe us.

Skin-On Interfaces

2019

Skin-On Interfaces are devices that augment existing devices with Artificial realistic skin. Human skin is the best interface for interaction. I propose this new paradigm in which interactive devices have their own artificial skin, thus enabling new forms of input gestures for end-users.

MobiLimb

2018

MobiLimb is a robotic finger that can be added to mobile devices. What if smartphones could touch us and reach our world? This project explores a future where anthropomorphic devices bring news input and output capabilities to existing devices.

Robotic Touch

2019

This project explores how humans perceive emotions from touch movements performed by a robot. Touching the forearm with different speed, velocity, and force can convey different emotions, which can be used in VR for mediated communication.

Human-like robot skin

2020

We propose a novel approach sensor for compliant Human-like artificial skin sensors for robots, with similar mechanical properties as human skin and capable of precisely detecting touch. This artificial skin sensor is precise, robust, low cost, deformable, familiar and intuitive to use and that can be easily replicated by robotics.

PolySense

2020

PolySense is an open-source fabrication process for creating smart textiles. It uses a process called in-situ polymerization to add electrical functionality to everyday materials such as fabrics, or feathers, to transform them as sensors.
