Illustrative Rendering, Visualization, and Human-Computer Interaction > AVIZ > Inria Saclay / Université Paris Saclay > Inria



I am a senior research scientist (directeur de recherche) with the AVIZ project team at Inria-Saclay / Université Paris Saclay, south of Paris in France.

I am member of the Scientific Visualization and Computer Graphics research group within the Johann Bernoulli Institute of Mathematics and Computer Science of the University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Since September 2010,

My research focuses on interactive scientific visualization and illustrative rendering, using methods from computer graphics, non-photorealistic rendering (NPR), and human-computer interaction. I am specifically interested in (2D and, in particular, 3D) interaction techniques for work with illustrative visualizations on large, touch-sensitive displays as well as illustrative visualization that is inspired by traditional illustration.

News and Upcoming Events

October 2017 Our journal article on “A Survey of Digital Stippling” is published in the journal Computers & Graphics.
July 2017 We will present a conference paper on “Neural Style Transfer: A Paradigm Shift for Image-based Artistic Rendering?” at the joint Expressive Symposium (CAe, NPAR, SBIM).
May 2017

We presented two conference papers at CHI this year, one on “Mouse, Tactile, and Tangible Input for 3D Manipulation” and one on “Pressure-Based Gain Factor Control for Mobile 3D Interaction using Locally-Coupled Devices”. The latter paper received a Best Paper Honorable Mention award.

December 2016 My book chapter on “Interactive Exploration of 3D Scientific Visualizations on Large Display Surfaces” was published in the Springer book “Collaboration Meets Interactive Surfaces and Spaces: Theory and Practice”.
October 2016 At IEEE VIS 2016, we presented two papers: one on the “Hybrid Tactile/Tangible Interaction for 3D Data Exploration” and another one entitled “Visualization as Seen Through its Research Paper Keywords”.
October 2016 We also presented a poster at IEEE VIS 2016 on “Tangible Brush: Performing 3D Selection with Portable and Position-aware Devices”.
October 2016 Finally, I again co-organized the BELIV symposium on “Beyond Time And Errors: Novel Evaluation Methods For Visualization”, to be co-located with IEEE VIS 2016.
September 2016 Our journal article entitled “ A Metadata Collection about IEEE Visualization (VIS) Publications” was accepted to IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
June 2016 We presented the state of the art report (STAR)A survey on Perceptually Motivated 3D Visualization of Medical Image Data” at EuroVis 2016, which was also published as a journal article in the Computer Graphics Forum.
May 2016 I presented a meta paper on “Interactive NPAR: What type of tools should we create?” at Expressive 2016.
May 2016 Our journal article entitled “Towards an Understanding of Mobile Touch Navigation in a Stereoscopic Viewing Environment for 3D Data Exploration” was published in IEEE Transactions on Visualization and Computer Graphics.
