Short Biography

In the past, I’ve been working in the field of Computer Graphics (CG), with an initial focus on stylized and expressive rendering, later extended toward the optics of materials on one side and human visual perception on the other side.

At present, I’m still working in CG but with a stronger interest in Ecology; hence ongoing projects are more geared toward visual appearance in Nature, for humans and animals alike.

In the future, I’m looking forward to making use of CG techniques in other scientific domains that deal with light: its interaction with natural materials, its structuration in a macroscopic scene and its perception by a living agent.
