What I do

I am a researcher crafting novel visual tools, to support humans in solving real-world, data-intensive problems. This research is at the intersection of the academic fields of Information Visualization, Human-Computer Interaction, and Design. My results are publications, prototypes, and toolkits, available online and their code open-source on GitHub. I am also interested in the combination of art, design, and visualization, to explore untapped design spaces.

Funded Projects (Work with me!)

Opening: Research Engineer, Post-Docs and Interns Frontend / Design Dataviz (2-year, Lyon France)

Urban Mobility (MI2): A major current and future challenge for cities is to improve human urban mobility. Both for reasons of comfort, well-being and public health (stress, accidents, pollution). LIRIS is involved over the period 2017-2020 in a consortium of companies expert in the collection and storage of data related to passenger mobility in public transport, cars and bicycles. Learn more about the project here. It started in Fall 2017 and has numerous open positions available right now.

Visual Analytics (VisTics): We aim at pushing the envelope of Visual Analytics tools and methods, by building a high performance infrastructure for visual exploration and steering of predictive models. The funding comes from a research starting grant Impulsion 2017 and will last one year (starting January 2017).

3D Motion Capture Visualization & Analysis (Amigo): École Centrale de Lyon has just acquired a state-of-the-art motion capture platform. We are interested in finding motion patterns and building predictive models, using interactive visualizations. Details on the platform and preliminary results are available. We are also interested in building benchmark datasets of annotated motions.
