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 an Associate 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.
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
