Professor in computer science at the University of Strasbourg since september 2017.
This means I am both:
- teaching at the department of mathematics and computer science of the university;
- and a researcher in the Engineering science, computer science and imaging laboratory ICube, in the IGG team.
I am also associated member of Inria MOSAIC team (Lyon).
My work spans computer vision and computer graphics to computational geometry and topology and to remote sensing. With an overall goal of shape analysis and understanding, my research interests include the acquisition, reconstruction and processing of 3D shapes in motion. I have worked on shapes digitised with laser scanners as well as multi-view stereo systems or medical imagery. These shapes range from human bodies and organs to animals, trees, plants or even mechanical parts. Currently I am especially interested in trees and plants, because of their challenging geometric and topological complexities.
Keywords: digital geometry processing, segmentation, reconstruction, geometric and topological feature computation.

Still active projects from my time in Grenoble:
- Mélinda Boukhana (started March 2018). Topic: Organ characterization in a crop for phenotyping. Other advisors: Frédéric Baret (INRA Avignon) and Benoît de Solan (Arvalis)
- Katia Mirande (starting November 2018). Topic: 3D segmentation and growth tracking of plant point clouds in field conditions. Other advisor: Christophe Godin (Inria Lyon)
And in Grenoble:
- Romain Rombourg (started October 2015). Topic: Digital tree: from the acquisition to a high-level geometric model. Other advisor: Eric Casella (Forestry Commission, UK)
- Jinlong Yang (started October 2015). Topic: Learning shape spaces of dressed 3D human models in motion. Other advisors: Jean-Sébastien Franco (Université Grenoble Alpes) and Stefanie Wuhrer (Inria Grenoble). Defense planned in March 2019.
