About Me

I am an assistant professor at the Université de Bordeaux, and a researcher in the manao team (LaBRI, CNRS, Inria).

Previsously, I was a PostDoc in the Dynamic Graphics Project at the University of Toronto working with Aaron Hertzmann. I also spent six months in the Pixar Research Group where I worked with Michael Kass, Kurt Fleisher and Forrester Cole.

I obtained my PhD from the MSTII Doctoral School of Université de Grenoble in July 2011, under the guidance of Joëlle Thollot and François Sillion, within Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann.
