Michel Beaudouin-Lafon is Professor at Université Paris-Saclay and Researcher at Laboratoire interdisciplinaire des sciences du numérique (LISN – CNRS/Université Paris-Saclay/CentraleSupélec/Inria).
Michel Beaudouin-Lafon enriches our uses of computers to make us more creative. The engineer by training discovered human-computer interaction during his PhD in computer science at the University of Paris-Sud. He was recruited as a lecturer in 1988 and promoted to university professor in 1992.
His research aims at understanding our use of computers in order to imagine new, simpler and more powerful interactions. Through a multidisciplinary approach, he created the instrumental interaction model in the 90s, which relies on our ability to use tools to shape our environment. In 2015, he addresses the creation of open and flexible collaborative environments with his ERC ONE project.
Since 2021, Michel Beaudouin-Lafon coordinates the network of 30 platforms of the structuring equipment for research/Equipex+ CONTINUUM. His work contributes to revolutionizing our ability to exploit digital environments that have become omnipresent in our daily lives.
