Research domain: Human-Computer interaction

My research focuses on the Engineering of Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). My interests include ergonomic as well as software design aspects of HCI. My primary motivation is to develop ways for making interaction techniques more usable. In particular my research studies centre on new interaction techniques, Multimodal and Augmented Reality (AR) user interfaces such as menu techniques, fusion mechanisms, service/component-based approaches for the development of multimodal and AR interfaces.


Keywords: Modality, Multimodality, Fusion Mechanism, Augmented Reality, CSCW, Visualization, Pervasive Computing, Mobile Interaction, Menu Technique, Design Space, Software Architecture, Framework.











Teaching: Computer Science

Since 1990, I have been teaching computer science at the University of Grenoble. The taught topics include programming, software architecture and Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) at different levels, from the first year of the University to the masters level. I have created several HCI related courses including multimodal interaction, ubiquitous and mobile computing and groupware-CSCW.
