Associate member, McGill
I’m an Associate Professor at McGill University, Director of McGill’s Graphics and Imaging Lab, and the NSERC/Ubisoft Industrial Research Chair in Believable Virtual Character Experiences. I’m broadly interested in realistic image synthesis for virtual reality,fluid simulation and control, digital manufacturing, computationally-augmented optics, and geometry processing. My work relies heavily on developing new Markov Chain Monte Carlo-based methods, applying machine learning to visual media, and leveraging computational statistics for complex multi-dimensional integration problems.
