My research focuses on the modeling, analysis and generation of expressive gesture. I am also interested in the perceptual evaluation of produced movements. I have mainly studied expert gestures with strong semantics such as sign language gestures, but also musical gestures such as percussing or conducting gestures, or emotional theatrical movements.
