I’m a digital + tangible product designer from France, currently working as researcher at MIT Senseable City Lab. I design interfaces and build stories to help researchers to develop and communicate their projects. I’m interested in human computer interaction of all kinds. In collaboration with engineers, mathematicians and planners, I use design as a pedagogical tool.

about

My work at MIT Senseable City Lab is about helping communicate cutting edge research to a broad audience. During spring 2018 I worked as teaching assistant at MIT School of Architecture and Planning. I also taught a design workshop about smart city, data and citizens at EnsAD, Paris.

Before joining MIT I designed interfaces regarding energy information within EDF Design Lab (Europe largest energy provider). In 2016 I graduated with a MFA in Product Design from EnsAD, Paris. Alma, my graduation project, is a set of pedagogical games (digital + tangible) explaining the algorithms we use everyday.
