About me

I am a research scientist at Unity Technologies since December 2015.

I was previously a postdoctoral researcher in the KIT Computer Graphics Group and a Ph.D. student in the MAVERICK team at INRIA in Grenoble under the supervision of Fabrice Neyret. I defended my thesis entitled “Multi-scale appearance for realistic and efficient rendering of complex surfaces” in September 2014.

During my Ph.D., I visited the LIGUM in Montréal,  I worked at NVIDIA Research, and I have been an invited researcher at Weta Digital.
