Professor in computer science at the University of Strasbourg since september 2017.

This means I am both:

  • and a researcher in the Engineering science, computer science and imaging laboratory ICube, in the IGG team.

Also associated member of Inria MOSAIC team (Lyon).


Research statement
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.

  • ROMI (H2020 project), as a member of Inria MOSAIC team

Still active projects from my Grenoble time:


PhD students

  • Mélinda Boukhana (started March 2018), PhenoCaract project

And in Grenoble:

  • Romain Rombourg (started October 2015), Digitree project
  • Jinlong Yang (started October 2015), ACHMOV project
