I am an assistant professor at LRI-Université Paris-Sud 11, part of the LRI HCC (ex InSitu) and the ILDA research team. My interests lie in novel interaction and visualization design and evaluation, especially on large high resolution displays.

Before my current position, I was an assitant professor at Ecole Centrale Paris working on desing of interactive visualizations. A few years back I was a research scientist at National ICT Australia (NICTA) and part of the [braccetto] project. There I investigated challenges and benefits in using large displays, vertical and horizontal, in multi-user groups, collocated and distributed.

I completed my PhD at the dgp lab of the department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. Under the supervision of Ravin Balakrishnan, I investigated challenges when interacting with wall-sized displays at close proximity.

Prior to my PhD, I completed a MSc in University of Toronto under the supervision of Alejo Hausner, where I used projections of scene hierarchies to accelerate ray tracing. I received my BSc from the department of Informatics at the U. of Piraeus.
