Brief Bio
Alexis Paljic is an associate professor in the Centre for Robotics, PSL-Research University, Mines ParisTech. His research field is immersion and interaction in virtual reality. He conducts research to explore the conditions of realistic response in virtual reality in the context of predictive use of VR, such as industrial design or therapy. He also seeks to adapt immersion and interaction in the context of wide public use of VR: emerging forms of cinema, games, or cultural mediation.
