Three words to define me : passionate, curious and dreamer.

Multidisciplinary training at :

I decided to indulge my passion and I specialize in the field of Computer Graphics and 3D real-time programming (Specialized Master ENSAM).

My industrial career in Visual Simulation and Virtual Reality gained at :

allowed me to work on exciting and innovative projects in the field of real-time 3D visualization for companies such as :


Research themes

My work deals with computer graphics. I'm focused on:


I recently joined the research team Maverick as an R&D engineer on the GigaVoxels project.
This technology allows : The “GigaVoxels” technology has risen from the explanatory phase research and first implementation by Cyril Crassin, a PhD student at INRIA, now in postdoc at NVidia.
This project, conducted under the supervision of Fabrice Neyret, senior researcher at INRIA in Computer Graphics, has lead to several publications and talks as well as two book chapters (see Cyril Crassin's web page).

I'm currently involved in an industrial implementation of GigaVoxels based on : Currently, in the team, I'm technically involved in : I'm also responsible of :

ANR, Agence Nationale de la Recherche

GigaVoxels est soutenu et financé dans le cadre du projet ANR "RTIGE" (Real-Time & Interactive Galaxy for Edutainment) de référence ANR-10-CORD-0006.
RTIGE : Real-Time & Interactive Galaxy for Edutainment

RTIGE : Real-Time & Interactive Galaxy for Edutainment

The GigaVoxels team is partner of the ANR (The French National Research Agency) funded project "RTIGE, Real-Time & Interactive Galaxy for Edutainment".
This project, started in december 2010, will last 48 months.

"RTI Galaxy for Edutainment program proposes to address the problem of display, representation and real-time rendering of scenes composed of massively heterogeneous possibly animated elements. This theme will be applied to the particular field of the Galaxy."

The main French industrial company, RSA Cosmos, has been in the planetarium business for more than 20 years and can now count more than 150 planetariums installed across the world. We collaborate to provide advices, expertise, and tools to visualize galaxies, in which GigaVoxels belongs.

Personal area

Here is what I like. Some links.

Passionate musician : » Mind Wake [ 2012-2014 ]

Mon dernier groupe de musique (métal symphonique avec influences progressives) - Preparing a full album (2015) :

Some links...
» Mon site de musique (avec mes compos perso)

Ci-dessous, deux de mes compositions en version instrumentale. Le style se rapproche d'un Rock/Métal Progressif à la Dream Theater : musicalité, virtuosité, images et des mots.

» Theopsya [ 2010 - 2012 ]

Mon précédent groupe de musique (métal mélodique/symphonique à voix féminine). Vous pouvez écouter quelques morceaux gratuits de notre album "Tales of an Angel".
