I recently took a position within the CNRS at Telecom ParisTech.
You should be re-directed to my new webpage automatically.

I joined the Scientific Computing and Imaging Institute (University of Utah) as a post-doctoral research associate in October 2008, ...four days after my Ph.D. defense. I'm the recipient of a Fulbright research fellowship and of a Lavoisier research fellowship.

I work with Pr. Valerio Pascucci on computational topology for shape analysis and scientific visualization.
I also occasionally teach at the School of Computing of the University of Utah, mainly giving lectures on computational topology.


- September 15, 2009: Our paper "Enabling advanced visualization tools (...)" has been accepted to IEEE eScience 2009.
- September 15, 2009: Our paper "A topological framework for the interactive exploration (...)" has been accepted to IEEE eScience 2009.
- August 31, 2009: Our Reeb graph code has been submitted to VTK.
- July 17, 2009: Our paper "Loop surgery for volumetric meshes (...)" has been officially accepted to IEEE VIS 2009!


I am working on topology based techniques for scientific visualization and shape analysis. During my Ph.D., I explored Reeb graph based 3D shape modeling for interactive edition and shape comparison (partial 3D shape retrieval).

I taught computational topology in Spring Semester 2009 (graduate program). I also used to teach computer science basics and computer graphics at TELECOM Lille 1.
