I received in 2002 the Engineering Degree in Electronic, Telecommunication and Computer Science from CPE-Lyon (France) and the MS degree in Image Processing from the university Jean Monnet of St-Etienne (France). In 2005, I obtained the Phd degree in computer science from the the University Claude Bernard of Lyon (France) then from february to april 2006, I was postdoctoral fellow at Signal Processing Institute (EPFL) in Switzerland. Since September 2006, I am associate professor et INSA-Lyon in the LIRIS Laboratory, working in the M2DisCo research group. I have defended my habilitation in 2013. My research interests include the following fields of Computer Graphics: 3D mesh analysis, 3D data transmission and streaming (including compression and watermarking), Web 3D, Perception and Human factors for computer graphics, and object recognition and detection. An IEEE senior member, I am a key member of the 3D Rendering, Processing, and Communications Interest Group of the Multimedia Communication Technical Committee (IEEE ComSoc society). Since September 2013 I am co-chair of the Technical Committee on Human Perception and Multimedia Computing from the IEEE SMC society. I serve on the editorial board of The Visual Computer Journal (2014-now).

MEPP The Mesh Processing Plateform MEPP  of our research team (M2Disco)  is now publicly available. It is an open source plateform based on CGAL, Qt and libQGLViewer which supports Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. This plateform allow the processing of static and dynamic 3D meshes and contains differents processing tools from the team (curvature calculation, segmentation, progressive compression, perceptual metric, fast boolean operations).
