I received my Engineering Master at CPE Lyon, France in 2005. I worked for Infineon Technologies in Munich, Germany between 2003-2004 and for Laika Studios|House in Portland, OR in 2007. Currently I am a PhD student in the School of EECS at the Oregon State University. I work as a research assistant for Prof. Sinisa Todorovic. My research mostly focuses on graphics, computer vision and machine learning problems, including 3D reconstruction, feature detectors and descriptors, spatiotemporal video segmentation, event recognition, and I am in general interested to any optimization problem. I passed my PhD defense end of April. I am officially graduating in June 2011 and looking for a position in graphics, in computer vision or in A.I. related field. My latest publications can be found here and my resume can be downloaded here
