    After my studies in the US (B.Sc.), France (M.Sc.), and Japan (Ph.D.), I have been doing research and teaching in computer science especially computer graphics (INRIA & CNRS, France). More recently, I managed a research and development team on an FP7 EU project [2009~2011] CyberEmotionsCyberEmotions relative to emotional models applied to virtual reality during almost three years at EPFL (Lausanne, Switzerland).

    I am currently working at the Image processing & Computer graphics group at the Faculty of Engineering of HE-Arc, HES-SO (Neuchatel, Switzerland) where my research interests focus on mixed and virtual realities as well as industrial gamification, serious games, data structure and data visualization.

    The summary of recent activities in terms of R&D projects, tech papers, and board committee memberships can be found here. Among them, is the recently international conference Gamification & Serious Game Symposium (GSGS) and I am the author of WebGL par la pratique, PPUR ("WebGL by practicing") and ed. author of GSGS'16, GSGS'17, GSGS'18, GSGS'19, and GSGS'20 [gsgs.ch].
