2010 - present IRIT - Université de Toulouse. Associate professor (Maitre de conférence). Teaching at Université Paul Sabatier, Toulouse III. I joined the VORTEX team, IRIT laboratory.

2008 - 2010 Postdoctoral Researcher at LaBRI - INRIA Bordeaux Sud-Ouest/University of Bordeaux I in the Iparla team.
2005 - 2008 I obtained my Ph. D. in September 2008, this work was done in the ARTIS team of the Laboratoire Jean Kuntzmann, Grenoble Université and INRIA Rhône-Alpes. Under the supervision of Joëlle Thollot and François Sillion, I have worked on stylisation of animations and temporal coherence of point based primitives. I have also done a six month visit at LIGUM under the supervision of Victor Ostromoukhov.
