My research focuses on one consequence of the digital revolution: the pervasiveness of digital traces we leave behind us. I study how we relate to these traces, how we can control them but also how they can enrich our lives. Ongoing projects include: leveraging traces to develop and improve our digital skills by reflecting on past experiences, enabling users to better understand the traces they produce and developing tools to better control how traces are used.

In the past years, I have explored these questions in the context of Biology laboratories, studying how researchers capture, re-visit and reflect on information (see my dissertation).

Ongoing Projects

  • Capturing and visualizing activity to mitigate interruptions with A. Rule and J. Hollan.
  • Understanding data physicalization with Simon Stusak from LMU.
  • TUIsla: wireless and battery-less phidgets + rapid fabrication.
  • Novel visualizations to explore physical and digital library collections, with the French National Library School and biin.
