Hello!

I'm Camille. I recently defended my PhD in October 2021 advised by Pascal Barla, Pierre Bénard and Gaël Guennebaud in the Manao team at Inria Bordeaux. My research focuses in Computer Graphics and Geometry Processing and more precisely on geometric deformation resulting from contacts in computer animation.
I obtained a MITACS Globalink Research Award - Inria for an internship at Université de Montréal in 2020, however due to the covid-19 situation, I was unable to use it.
I have always wanted to apply my knowledge to visual works. Above all, my major goal is to provide artists the tools they need to perform their art without thinking about the complexity of the technology behind the softwares they use.

Before this PhD, I haved worked for 5 years in Dassault Systèmes near Paris as an UI infrastructure developer.
I obtained my master degree in computer science and applied mathematics at ENSIMAG (Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Informatique et de Mathématiques Appliquées) in Grenoble, France.
