Short bio

I did my PhD at INRIA Rhones-Alpes (Grenoble) in iMAGIS/EVASION team, under the supervision of Fabrice Neyret. My PhD work was about advanced texturing methods using GPUs (see also my thesis webpage). After graduating I joined Microsoft Research, Seattle, as a postodctoral researcher during the year 2005. I worked with Hugues Hoppe on real-time texture synthesis and texturing. I became an INRIA researcher in September 2006, joining the REVES team in INRIA Sophia Antipolis. In late 2009 I joined the ALICE team at INRIA Nancy. In 2010, I received the EUROGRAPHICS Young Researcher Award. In 2012, I received an ERC strating grant for my project ShapeForge.

My current research focuses are in procedural content generation (often starting from examples), end-user content manipulation and compact GPU-friendly data structures for interactive applications, 3D printing and games.
