I am a postdoctoral researcher at Brown University, working with James Hays since November 2012.
I did my Ph.D. in the REVES team at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis (France),
under the supervision of George Drettakis and Adrien Bousseau.
I defended my thesis entitled "Intrinsic Image Decomposition from Multiple Photographs" on October 12, 2012.
You can download it here, along with accompanying materials.
During my PhD, I visited Boston to work with Frédo Durand (MIT) and Sylvain Paris (Adobe),
and Berkeley to work with Maneesh Agrawala.
Before joining INRIA, I received M.Eng. and M.Sc. degrees from INSA Lyon in France. I was supervised by Sung-Eui Yoon, Christian Wolf and Khalid Idrissi during my Master internship on content-aware image retargeting, and worked on catadioptric vision with Jean-Charles Bazin. I have also studied in KAIST (South Korea) and traveled around Asia, and am always looking for new international experiences!
