Research Topics


I am a Research Fellow in the V-SENSE project at the School of Computer Science and Statistics in Trinity College Dulin.

I received the Engineering degree from Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines (ENSM) de Nantes, France in 2012 and my PhD degree in computer science from University of Rennes 1, Rennes, France in 2016. My PhD studies were conducted in conjunction between INRIA (Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique) and Technicolor in Rennes, France, and addressed the compression of High Dynamic Range video content. I then stepped into the vast topic of light fields as a postdoctoral researcher at INRIA Rennes, before joining the V-SENSE team.

Research Topics

My research interests are in light fields as well as high dynamic range (HDR) imaging and cover a large spectrum of the processing chain from capture to compression, including editing tasks and rendering.

More detail on my previous projects at INRIA can be found here.
