Biographical Information

Currently I am Postdoctoral research fellow at University of Technology of Compiègne (top executive French engineering school). In last january, I completed my research work (PhD) in Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence. I had the opportunity to work for France Telecom R&D (Orange Labs since 2007) for 3 years on the design of Collaborative Virtual Environments (CVE). I especially developed a bayesian model of human’s non-verbal behavior (gaze, facial expressions and gestures) for avatars in CVE in order to simulate the face-to-face communication when individuals are in remote locations. I also participated to realize many projects in virtual reality and gaming area for French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) and world CAD leader Dassault Systemes. I have taken every opportunity to teach, and I have also participated in various educational projects outside of the university environment. I have carried out fundamental and strategic research in multidisciplinary manner in the areas of psychology and corpus analysis, virtual reality and computer graphics, serious games, artificial intelligence, Image processing, biometrics, multimodal interactions and data fusion.
