My research interests lie in the modeling of images and data visualization. Among the applications my students and I tackle are: image content manipulation, stylization and production (transferring colors, stylize maps, synthesize textures etc.), help creative people to create more and new things with new tools, and design visualizations of any kind of data (geolocalized, textual, budget data, etc.). In other words, all kinds of algorithms to modify/analyze/render/simulate/create some raster/vector images.
I presently collaborate, or have collaborated recently, with the following companies or institutions: Canadiens de Montréal (CH), Ministère de la Culture Québec, TMX, Synapse C, Chaire de recherche en fiscalité et finances publiques, Cinémathèque, BAnQ, Le Devoir, Bombardier, Radio-Canada, Inria, IGN.
If you like visual things and coding + seek to do an internship, M.Sc., Ph.D. please contact me !
I am presently a professor at Polytechnique Montréal in the Computer Science department. From 2009 to mid-2014, I was a tenured assistant professor (maître de conférences) at Paris Descartes University in the Mathematics and Computer Science department. From november 2008 until july 2009, I was a post-doc at INRIA in the MAVERICK team with Joëlle Thollot. I have obtained my Ph.D. at the TélécomParisTech school and Polytechnique Montréal under the guidance of the late Francis Schmitt, Yann Gousseau and Farida Cheriet. Recently, I obtained a diploma of higher specialized studies in journalism from Université de Montréal. A long time ago, I got my Bachelor of Engineering from the CentraleSupélec school in France.
I have the pleasure of working with the following students:

Data visualizationsOn the data visualization side of my research topics, my students and I regularly collaborate with Quebec media and institutions to produce some interactive visualizations on various news subjects.
I am presently involved in the following funded projects:
