In addition to my own research contribution, I manage a small research group in Adobe's Advanced Technology Labs (ATL).
My team focuses on the use of high-performance computing, available in desktops and notebooks (and tablets), to develop design paradigms and user experiences of the future.
Some specific topics that the group focuses on are:
The research included 9 research internships, 6 university collaborations, 3 PhD topics. Product groups have shown a keen interest in these technologies. Initiatives such as Image Relighting, Intrinsic Images and Shape Estimation push the boundaries of Computational Imaging and are poised to revolutionize aspects of digital photography and content creation.
Under my leadership, consultation & mentoring, and through my direct research contribution, I shipped the following flagship product features
You must have wondered how they did the hair in "Shrek The Third", the foliage in "Madagascar", and recently hair in "How to Train Your Dragon". Before joining Adobe, I worked at PDI/DreamWorks for four years (2003-2006) developing some cool special effects and character dynamics technologies — strand & hair dynamics, rigid bodies, particles and fluids.
I finished my PhD from MIRALab, University of Geneva in 2003.
