Emilie Palagi

I am a PhD in Computer Sciences, and more specifically in Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and UX Research. The aim of my thesis work, carried out between Inria and EURECOM with a UCN Labex fellowship, was to design a user-centered methodology for the evaluation of exploratory search systems. These methods are based on a model of the exploratory search process.

Previously, after a Bachelor in Linguistics (University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis) in 2012 and a Master 1 in Cognitive Sciences in 2013 (University of Lyon 2), I obtained in 2014 a Master 2 in Sociology and Ergonomics of Digital Technologies (University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis). After my end-of-courses internship in Wimmics team (Inria/I3S), I was a research engineer in HCI in Wimmics team and MinD team (CNRS/I3S) the year prior the start of my PhD. This experience helped me to improve my knowledge and my skills in HCI with different projects.
