Guillaume Besacier was a post-doctoral fellow in Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). During his Ph.D. at the Université Paris-Sud (France), supervised by Michel Beaudouin-Lafon and Frédéric Vernier, he worked with interactive tabletop computers and designed new interaction techniques to use a tabletop more effectively and easily, while being compatible with existing WIMP interfaces.
Guillaume is particularly interested in computer-supported collocated cooperation, collaborative learning from each-other, Web 2.0 collaboration, collaborative games and other forms of lightweight cooperation, and the interactions to support this. In a previous life, Dr. Besacier was a software engineer. He's still a little bit of a geek because of that.
