I am a junior researcher at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis in the REVES research group. I did my PhD in the Artis group at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, my advisers were Joëlle Thollot and François X. Sillion. During my PhD I also spent 6 months in Seattle as an intern at Adobe's Advanced Technology Labs under the supervision of David Salesin, and 3 months in Cambridge at MIT CSAIL under the supervision of Frédo Durand and Sylvain Paris. I did my postdoc at UC Berkeley, working with Maneesh Agrawala and Ravi Ramamoorthi.
I do research on image creation and manipulation, with a focus on drawings and photographs. Most notably I did some work on image stylization (SIGGRAPH 2007, TOG 2013), on image editing and relighting (SIGGRAPH Asia 2009, TVCG 2012, SIGGRAPH Asia 2012) and on automatic or interactive tools for illustrators and designers (SIGGRAPH 2008, EGSR 2011, SIGGRAPH 2012, SIGGRAPH 2013). I received one of the three Eurographics 2011 PhD award for my research on expressive image manipulations.

List of publications
You can try our Photoshop watercolor filter on your own pictures! Our work on watercolor rendering has been initiated by a collaboration with the french cartoon studio Broceliande. As a result, a Mental Ray plug-in called Graphanim has been developped by David Lanier. We have presented several aspects of our research on watercolor rendering at Imagina 2008, which led to an article by Noriko Kurachi in the Japanese magazines CGWORLD and FDI. Noriko Kurachi also wrote an article on the research done in the Artis research team, in the Eizoshimbun journal.
Noriko Kurachi also wrote an article on our research on intrinsic images for the FDI journal.
