I am a research scientist in the GraphDeco group at Inria. I received my Ph.D. from the Université Grenoble Alpes, supervised by Marie-Paule Cani and Eric Galin, where I worked on large-scale landscape synthesis. Then, I did a postdoc at ETH Zurich with Markus Gross and Barbara Solenthaler, where I worked on machine learning-based control of fluid simulations.

My research interests include simulation and modeling of natural phenomena, and especially how to leverage physically-based algorithms from Earth and environemental sciences with intuitive user control.


I am looking for a postdoc on inverse terrain modeling on my ANR project Invterra. The topic (here) is flexible and can involve machine learning, optimization, or some notions of physics.


I supervise the Ph.D. thesis of Aryamaan Jain and co-supervise the Ph.D. of Nicolas Rosset and Petros Tzathas.
