Head of research IRCAM, leading the team Sound Music Movement Interaction, my work concerns gestural interaction and movement analysis for music and perfoming arts. The applications of my research range from digital musical instruments to rehabilitation guided through sound feedback. I coordinated several projects such as Interlude (ANR Prize for Digital Technologies 2013, Guthman Prize 2011 of new musical instruments) on new interfaces for music or the ANR Legos project on sensorimotor learning in interactive music systems.
After scientific and musical studies (Master in Physics and PhD in Biomedical Optics from EPFL, Berklee College of Music in Boston), I was a researcher at the University of California Irvine (UCI), before joining IRCAM in 2003.
