HCI researcher and interaction designer, I develop creative hardware and software experiences that bring technology closer to human nature. I am currently postdoctoral researcher at Saarland University, I did my PHD thesis at Télécom Paris and HCI La Sorbonne. Get my Resume.

These days, I question existing devices form factor and explore how affective communication can be mediated through anthropomorphic devices to leverage new human experiences.

Skin-On Interfaces

2019

Skin-On Interfaces are devices that augment existing devices with Artifical 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.

Robot-Initiated 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.
