I am assistant professor of Computer Science at the Ensimag (School of Computer Science and Applied Mathematics, INP Grenoble University), and a researcher at the INRIA Grenoble Rhône-Alpes, France, with the Morpheo team since 2011.


I obtained my PhD from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble in 2005 with the INRIA MOVI team. I started my professional career as a postdoctoral research assistant at the University of North Carolina's Computer Vision Group in 2006, and as assistant professor at the University of Bordeaux, with the IPARLA team, INRIA Bordeaux Sud-Ouest. My expertise and interest is in the field of computer vision, dynamic 3D modeling and 4D spatio-temporal modeling from multiple views, 3D interaction. Full CV available.

GrImage: Mixed Reality Interaction


We are releasing binaries of our new software, QuickCSG, which can compute visual hulls as well as arbitrary boolean combinations on N polyhedral solids. Current tests on our 68-camera Kinovis platform show that QuickCSG outperforms our previous visual hull computation software EPVH by a factor of 20x on 40 cameras or more. Our experimental tests also show that QuickCSG significantly outperforms all currently known available boolean CSG codes in terms of speed on two or more inputs. A publication is currently submitted for review but a preliminary version is available as research report.



EPVH is one of the projects developed during my thesis. I receive a number of requests for providing the code or binary. I can no longer distribute either, as EPVH is now exclusively distributed by 4DViews, and built-in 4DViews software suites. If you have datasets on which you would like to perform comparisons with EPVH for research purposes, I can process them and provide the resulting data for static objects or sequences. However, you are encouraged to use QuickCSG instead, which significantly outperforms EPVH.
