Loup will work on a new project linking Meditation, the Self & Neuroengineering

Loup Vuarnesson is specialized in digital interface design and the creation of interactive and immersive experiences. After a Master’s degree in sound postproduction at the University of Valenciennes & Hainaut-Cambrésis, he worked as research engineer at the Centre Industriel de Réalité Virtuelle in St Nazaire and the PsyCoTec laboratory in Nantes. Following several employments as video game and VR developer, he carried out his PhD work (2016-2022) between the SpatialMedia group of the EnsadLab (Paris Sciences Lettres and Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs, ENSAD) and the company Emotic. He also has expertise in several transdisciplinary research projects, including co-creativity in immersion, natural and multimodal interactions, and the adaptivity of user journeys.

His works focus on revealing the creative and narrative potential of spatialized mediations, where natural interactive language offers new paradigms for thinking, sharing and feeling the digital data.

Loup will join our team working on an ambitious 3-year project, entitled “The Home within”. The project is dedicated to combining neuroscience of the self with engineering approaches such as VR, with meditative practice and scholarship.

Welcome to the Lab Loup!
