Téo Sanchez

I'm open for post-doc opportunities in Germany! 🇩🇪

I am a postdoctoral researcher specializing in human-AI interaction. I earned my Ph.D. as a member of the ExSitu research team in LISN, and the HCI team in ISIR.

My primary focus is on understanding how people comprehend and interact with AI systems, alongside designing meaningful and effective interactions with machine learning algorithms.

In particular, my work focuses on understanding and developing teachable ML systems that enable users to simultaneously generate the knowledge data of interest and experience the model’s predictions and improvements. This approach creates simultaneous usage and development and can potentially advance more personalized and transparent AI systems for non-expert users in AI, either for pedagogy or in niche domains (e.g., science, medecine, arts).
