Joffrey Becker obtained a doctorate in social anthropology and ethnology, and is a research affiliate at the Laboratoire d’Anthropologie Sociales (UMR7130). His research focuses on robotics and more particularly on the relationship between humans and machines. This research resulted in the publication of several articles (especially in Gradhiva, Tracés, and Multitudes), and a book entitled Humanoïdes, Expérimentations croisées entre arts et sciences, published in 2015 by the Presses Universitaires de Paris Ouest.

Researcher Joffrey Becker explores why robots can sometimes appear as strange creatures to us and seeks to better understand people’s tendency to anthropomorphise machines.
