I am an associate professor habil. (HDR) 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).

My research work addresses virtual reality, especially multi-modal, intuitive, adaptive, collaborative interaction (navigation/manipulation) in a virtual environment, with an interest in human factors (cybersickness, perception).

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 adapting interaction to the user and the context 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 industrials.
