I am an assistant professor at Arts et Métiers, Cluny campus, and with Institut Image, a research team in virtual reality located in Chalon-sur-Saône (Burgundy, France) and part of the LISPEN lab (EA 7515).
I am also the coordinator of the M.Sc. course program "Management of 3D Interactive Technologies - Digital Mock-up and 3D Visualization" of Arts et Métiers / Institut Image.

My research work addresses virtual reality, especially multi-modal, natural and intuitive interaction (navigation/manipulation) in a virtual environment, tele-collaboration.

My research interest include, but is not limited to, virtual reality, especially multi-modal interaction (navigation/manipulation) in a 3D virtual environment, tele-collaboration (using mixed reality facilities). I am focusing on allowing more natural and more intuitive interaction in a 3D virtual environment, considering user-centered issues (simulator sickness, multi-sensory feedback, etc.).

I am involved in several research projects, in collaboration with numerous academics and companies.
