I obtained my bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Cergy-Paris in 2021. I then obtained a master’s degree in Computer Science and Complex Systems Engineering, with a specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (research track). I’m currently doing my PhD (from 2023 to 2026).

PhD title: Nonverbal gestures production by adaptive rhythmical sensori-motor control.

Abstract: The present Phd Thesis is in the framework of the ANR Project Enhancer involving different academic partners and will be conducted in close collaboration with ISIR Laboratory (Sorbonne University). The aim of this thesis is to develop a model (of an arm) for expressive and natural co-verbal gestures, and to understand the motor control mechanisms involved in the production of this type of gesture.
