Short Bio:

I graduated and received a MS in computer science from Rennes 1 University in 2004, followed by a PhD at INRIA Rennes on 3D reconstruction of urban areas using GPS, GIS and uncalibrated video data, which I defended by the end of 2007. After two years as an expert engineer at INRIA working on 3D reconstruction and rendering for auto-stereoscopic 3DTV, I joined Technicolor in March 2010. I now work mainly on high-quality real-time rendering.

Research interests:

Almost everything that falls into the fields of image synthesis and processing or computer vision.

List of achievements:

Best paper award at the conference CORESA 2009:
Gaël Sourimant, Thomas Colleu, Vincent Jantet, Luce Morin. "Recalage GPS / SIG / Video, et synthèse de textures de bâtiments". COmpression et REpresentation des Signaux Visuels (CORESA 2009), Toulouse, France, March, 2009.
