I am a CNRS Researcher with the Etienne-Jules Marey Institute at the  Aix-Marseille University. Our group studies the mechanics linked to tactile perception. Our approach lies at the intersection of the observation of tactile interaction with high precision devices, the design of haptic interfaces for reproducing realistic tactile sensations and the psychophysical study of human perception.
