I am a postdoctoral researcher in INRIA Nancy Grand-Est working in the LARSEN team on the European Project AnDy.

My research focuses on experimental and computational human motion analysis in the context of physical human-robot interaction. This research serves to develop human-centered designs and controllers for collaborative robots, with a focus on ergonomics.

I received my Engineer's Degree from Ecole Polytechnique and my M.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from University Pierre and Marie Curie in 2011. In 2015, I received my Ph.D in Robotics from University Pierre and Marie Curie under the advisement of Pr. Philippe Bidaud and Pr. Vincent Padois. From 2015 to 2017 I was a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Biology Department at Northeastern University and a member of the Action Lab under the direction of Pr. Dagmar Sternad.
