About me

I am a research scientist at INRA (GMPA department, MALICES team). Previously I worked at Télécom ParisTech and Inria. I obtained my PhD in information visualization from the University of Kent (UK).

Research

My research interests are in the fields of information visualization and visual analytics, focusing on uncertainty and exploratory visualization. I have experience in user-centered design through a variety of projects involving different stakeholders and user groups (VISTA, REACTIVITY, CSDL, CENDARI).

News
