About me

I am a computer science professor and I am focusing my researches on human-computer interaction, ubiquitous computing, context-aware systems and mobile computing. I am particularly interested by the utilization of the contextual information in smart environments like smart homes, smart cities and open smart spaces, to provides new ways to assist the users and recognize human activities. I’m also interested in mixed and augmented reality technologies to support the task or activity assistance in industrial and health scenarios.

I am currently an associate professor (fr : professeur agrégé) at the Université de Sherbrooke in Sherbrooke, Québec, Canada, in the Department of Information System and Quantitative Methods for Management.  Before, I was associate professor in computer science at the Télé-Université du Québec (TÉLUQ) in Montreal (2012-2019) and earlier a postdoctoral fellow at the Ubicomp lab of the Human Computer Interaction Institute of Carnegie Mellon University (2011-2012). I received my Ph.D. (2008 to 2011)  from the Université de Sherbrooke, Canada, where I was member of the DOMUS lab, and from the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris VI)/Telecom SudParis, France, where I was member of the Handicom lab. Previously, I received a B.Sc. and a M.Sc. in computer science from the Université de Sherbrooke.
