IGNACIO AVELLINO

(aka Nacho)

Ignacio Avellino

Hi! I am a permanent researchers (Chargé de Recherche) at the CNRS, working in the lab Institut des Systèmes Intelligents et de Robotique (ISIR). My research is in the field of HCI, at the crossroads of interaction design, remote collaboration (CSCW), learning, and robotics. My main application domain is health and in particular surgery. My current research topic is Surgical Telementoring, where I study interaction with technology in the operating room (including surgical robots) to mentor surgeons remotely. Before I was a post doctoral researcher at the Interactive Systems Research Center, UMBC, and before a post doctoral researcher at ISIR. I did my PhD at ExSitu, Paris SACLAY University.
