I am a permanent research scientist (CR1 CNRS, Section 7, CID 53) at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics of the Sorbonne Université, Paris, working in the AGATHE team. I was previously working as an associate researcher at the Human Robotics Group, Dept. of Bioengineering, Imperial College London under the supervision of Pr. E. Burdet. I received my PhD from UPMC in 2011, under the supervision of Pr. G. Morel, and, previously, an M.Eng. in Mechanical Engineering from Arts et Métiers ParisTech and an M.Sc. in Robotics from UPMC, both in 2006.
My research projects aim at understanding and improving the physical Human-Robot interaction (pHRi) for neuromotor rehabilitation and assistance applications (especially for the upper-limb) to further embodiment of technological devices. I am especially interested in the natural control of wearable or interacting mechatronic devices (exoskeletons, prosthetics, instrumented interfaces, cobots), the physical coupling between robotic devices and the human body and the analysis of human sensorimotor control and interactive behaviours. I am also interested in the Ethical, Legal and Societal (ELS) issues in medical and assistive robotics.
Title: "The use of motor coordinations for rehabilitation and assistive robotics"
