I am an assistant professor (maître de conférences) in the Computer Science department at Ecole Polytechnique in France with a CNRS chaire d'excellence and the Jean Marjoulet chair from Ecole Polytechnique. I am a member of the LIX research laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique and an associate member (external collaborator) of the DataShape team at INRIA.

My research is primarily related to geometric (3d) shape analysis and processing with emphasis on non-rigid shape matching and comparison. In the past, I have worked on methods for dynamic registration, non-rigid shape-matching, shape comparison and retrieval, symmetry detection, among other things. I'm also very interested in image processing, computer graphics and computer vision in general. You can find some of my work on the Publications page.

(October 2017):
Together with Tamy Boubekeur and Pooran Memari, I am co-organizing SGP 2018 that will take place in Paris. The dates have been set and can be found on the conference website that we have created. Hope to see you there!
(September 2017):
I gave a talk at the Geometry Workshop in Obergurgl. The slides for my talk on Some structural properties of functional map computation are now online.
(September 2017):
I have just received an ERC Starting Grant for a project on exploring relations in structured data with functional maps. The official announcement is here.
