About me


I'm an assitant professor at XLIM Institute, University of Limoges (France). Specialized in computer graphics, I'm working on visualization and interactive simulation of complex molecular structures in collaboration with Matthieu MONTES (GBCM laboratory, CNAM Paris) and Jean-Philip PIQUEMAL (LCT, Sorbonne University, Paris). This work is part of two ERC-funded projects : ViDOCK and EMC2.

Before, I spent two years as a postdoctoral researcher at Laboratoire d'Informatique Gaspard Monge (LIGM) of the University of Paris-Est in France. I was working on geometric data structures for global illumination, with Venceslas Biri, and in collaboration with Ubisoft Motion Pictures Montreuil.

I fulfilled my Ph.D. at the University of Poitiers in France, in the XLIM Institute, under the supervision of Lilian Aveneau and Sébastien Horna. I defended my thesis entitled "Constrained Convex Space Partition for Ray-based Simulation" in november 2016.
