I am research scientist (“Chargé de Recherche”) at Inria, member of the Ex)Situ team, and faculty member at the Université Paris-Saclay at the Interdisciplinary Laboratory of Digital Sciences (LISN - CNRS).
My research lies in the area of Human-Computer Interaction. I am especially interested in the following topics: sketching user interfaces, creativity-support and computer-assisted design tools, visualization design, gesture-based and pen-based interaction. I have also developed strong interest in statistical inference and modeling methods with applications in qualitative data analysis and visualization problems.
After a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (Greece), I moved to Canada. I completed a M.Sc. and then a Ph.D. degree (2007) at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Toronto. I continued my research carreer in France, first as a postdoctoral follow and then as a faculty member.
I received my Habilitation (HDR) in July 2020.
