Image Hi! I am an Associate Research Scientist in the Imaging and Video Group at Disney Research Zurich since August 2014. I am also an adjunct lecturer at ETH Zurich where I teach "Mathematical Foundations of Computer Graphics and Vision". Before joining Disney Research, I was a Postdoc and a Senior Research Associate ("Oberassistent") at the Computer Graphics Laboratory of Prof. Markus Gross and at Computer Vision and Geometry Group of Prof. Marc Pollefeys at ETH Zurich, Switzerland (2011-2014). During this time, I was a member of the Being There Center and was working in collaboration with Disney Research Zurich. Before working at ETHZ, I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Computer Vision Lab of Prof. Katsushi Ikeuchi, Tokyo, Japan (2010/2011). I received an MS in Computer Science at Universite de Technologie de Compiegne, France (2006) and a PhD in Electrical Engineering at Robotics and Computer Vision Laboratory, KAIST, South Korea (2011).

My research interests include various topics in computer vision and graphics, such as image/video editing and processing. For more details, see my CV and publication list. During spare time, I enjoy hiking in the lovely Swiss mountains. I also love experiencing new cultures and had the opportunity to live and work in seven different countries (France, United Kingdom, USA, South Korea, Japan, Switzerland and Singapore). I had the chance to spend seven years in South Korea, and this was an absolutely great, intense and unforgettable experience!
