Teaching

Teaching statement

My teaching philosophy is to help students become autonomous in their learning process. For this purpose, they need to face knowledge, problems and methods of increasing complexity according to Bloom's taxonomy. I strongly believe students can durably understand something only if the learning process follows the main ideas of Jean Houssaye's educational triangle. I also like to make students work in groups in order to confront and increase their soft skills, e.g. following an agile methodology.

 

Responsibility

 

Lectures

The computer games developed by the students in the context of this project are now part of a digital exhibition in a local museum!

 

Research

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.

 

Popularisation

Check the presentation I made (in French) about digital geometry processing in 2014 (part 1, part 2). Check also this video by Eric Casella.
