Maks Ovsjanikov

I am a professor in the Computer Science department at Ecole Polytechnique in France. I am a member of the GeoViC group at the LIX research laboratory of Ecole Polytechnique and an associate member (external collaborator) of the DataShape team at INRIA. My current research is mainly supported by my ERC Starting Grant: EXPROTEA.

My research is primarily related to geometric (3D) shape analysis with emphasis on Deep Learning for non-rigid shape comparison and processing. In the past, I have worked on topics including shape classification and retrieval, non-rigid shape-matching, comparison, denoising and symmetry detection especially on 3D point cloud and triangle mesh data. 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.

    Our paper Assessing Craniofacial Growth and Form Without Landmarks done in collaboration between our group, including Robin Magnet, and Simone Melzi, as well as a craniofacial surgeon and researcher Roman Khonsari and his group has been accepted in the Journal of Morphology. In this paper we present a novel fully-automatic method for the morphometric analysis of 3D shapes, and use it for detecting and quantifying two craniofacial anomalies: trigonocephaly and metopic ridges, using CT-scans of young children.

    I gave an invited talk at the 3D Vision Summer School on Recent learning-based approaches for 3D shape understanding and correspondence.

    Our paper TIDE: Time Derivative Diffusion for Deep Learning on Graphs with Maximilian Krahn and Maysam Behmanesh has been accepted at ICML 2023. This paper presents an efficient method for learning on graphs that allows long-range communication without oversmoothing, and, at the same time, inherits the full expressive power of local message passing approaches.

    While not research related, perhaps the most important news of all, our baby daughter Ida was born in February 2023! Her mother and her are both doing well (to the extent possible).
