Welcome! I am originally from Québec City, Canada, and after almost 10 years in the States I am back in this beautiful city since 2013.
I obtained my Ph.D. in 2011 from the Robotics Institute, in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University, where I was advised by Alyosha Efros and Srinivas Narasimhan. I then spent a year as a Computer Vision Scientist at Tandent, Inc., followed by another year as a Post-Doc at Disney Research, Pittsburgh. I’m now a Full Professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Université Laval.
I do research in computer vision, machine learning, AR and VR. In particular, I am interested in exploring how physics-based models and data-driven machine learning techniques can be combined to better understand, model, interpret, and recreate the richness of our visual world. See here for a more “official” bio.
My group has captured some of the largest datasets of HDR illumination, both indoors and outdoors, freely available to academic researchers. Get them here.
Want to know more? Do one (or many, or all) of the following:
- have a look at my publications;
- read this short paper (best paper award at WIO 2018);
- watch the keynote presentation I gave at the OmniCV workshop @ CVPR 2020
- visionnez cette présentation (séminaire REPARTI) en français :
