About me. I am a postdoc research scientist at the ISIR Laboratory (HCI group) of Sorbonne Université. My fields of research are Human-Computer Interaction and Information Visualization.

I focus on decision making -- how to help people make unbiased and informed decisions alone or in groups. I am especially interested in the kinds of decisions for which the current decision-support systems, models and people's heuristics tend to fail.
