Marcos Serrano

Born in Madrid, Marcos Serrano lives and works in Paris. Doctor in human-machine interaction and interaction designer, Marcos has long been interested in the frontier between science, art and design. After training in computer science at the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) and at École Nationale Supérieure d’Informatique de Grenoble (ENSIMAG), Marcos chose to focus on human-machine interaction, a multidisciplinary field that allows him to take a different look at the digital world. He then joined the IIHM research team at the Grenoble Computer Science Laboratory, where he completed his doctorate and participated in various research projects. Among others, Marcos is responsible for a working group (workpackage) within the European research project OpenInterface, dedicated to multimodal interaction. His thesis work in human-machine interaction focuses on conceptual and software methods for prototyping multimodal interfaces, interfaces involving several modes of interaction, such as speech, gesture or touch. In 2008, he joined the DRii program of le Cycle supérieur de recherche & création (now Reflective Interaction) of École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs (EnsadLab) to continue his research on the design of interactive devices.
