In the haptic intelligence department since 2017, I supervise and guide scientists on mechanical design and manufacturing. Make suggestions regarding materials, shapes, and tolerances for the design and integration of components.
Before joining Max Planck Institute I grow up in France and after a B-eng in 2004 (Maîtrise de Technologie et Mécanique, option Recherche, Besançon) and a public teaching accreditation in 2005 (Agrégation de Génie Mécanique, Grenoble) I work for 10 years as a Manufacturing Teacher in a French-specific undergraduate program (Brevet de Technicien Supérieur CPRP, lycée Dorian, Paris). In the meantime, I obtained a Master in Robotic from UPMC (Paris VI) in 2011 and then a Ph.D. in haptics under Pr. Vincent Hayward supervision in 2016.
My research interest is in designing new actuators and new sensors for building precise setups in order to better understand human perception. I do like working with piezo and fluids and considering materials and metrology constraints as a mean to achieve great setups.
Outside of work I enjoy reading Mangas, playing table-tennis, climbing and practicing analog photography.
Our goal is to understand the principles of Perception, Action and Learning in autonomous systems that successfully interact with complex environments and to use this understanding to design future systems
