Postdoctoral researcher, ENSTA-ParisTech
I am a researcher in robotics currently doing a post-doc at the Robotics and Computer Vision Lab of ENSTA-ParisTech under the supervision of Pr. Adriana Tapus. My main interest is the development of natural interaction modalities and expressive behaviors for autonomous robots.

Between 2009 and 2014, I was a full-time PhD student supervized by Pr. François Michaud at Université de Sherbrooke in Québec, Canada. Our laboratory, IntRoLab, is part of the 3IT. The bulk of my work has been in the integration various software components in a single, coherent architecture for IRL-1, our wheeled humanoid robot. I did my Master's at the same laboratory, working on user interfaces for telepresence robots, which is detailed in my HRI 2009 paper.
In Spring 2014, I did a short internship at ENSTA-ParisTech. I worked on adaptative expressive behaviors for autonomous robots such as the Meka M-1. I notably participated to an experiment on motion-oriented attention which was presented at ICSR in October 2014.
In March 2013, I visited Willow Garage in Menlo Park, California for a few days. We integrated ManyEars, the sound localization and tracking system from our lab in Sherbrooke on a PR2, which lead to this video. You can learn more about 8-Sounds, the open hardware project behind it, at its SourceForge page.
