Since February 2015, I am a research scientist with Morpheo team at  INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes in France. Since July 2012, I am also adjunct research professor at the School of Computer Science at Carleton University in Canada. My research interests include shape analysis, geometry processing, and human body and face modeling.


Before joining INRIA, I worked as research group leader at Saarland University in Germany from 2011 to 2015, and was associated with the Max-Planck Institut for Informatics. From 2009 to 2011, I was a research associate at the National Research Council of Canada. I received a Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2009 and a M.Sc. in 2006 from Carleton University in Canada, and a Diplom-Mathematik (FH) in 2005 from the University of Applied Sciences Stuttgart in Germany.
