In November 2005 I began my PhD here at EVASION.

I worked on sketching interfaces for modeling and animation of natural phenomena. I created easy to use software that eases the process of digital content creation by enabling the artist to model their ideas directly through sketching and annotation.

My PhD thesis is available here.

Some of my work is summarised in this poster, presented at the Marie Curie Conference 2008.

My supervisor was Marie-Paule Cani.

Press comment on some of our work.

I now work for TT Games.

I co-wrote a book chapter 'Dressing and Hair-Styling Virtual Characters from a Sketch' in the book 'Sketch-based Interfaces and Modeling' published by Springer.
