After graduating at Bordeaux 1 University and doing an internship at LIAMA in Beijing (China), I started to work for INRIA at Lille in November 2007 as a Junior Engineer. Since then, I am participating actively on the development of the SOFA framework, especially in the rendering part. Besides, for 3 years I was coding for several projects such as an ophthalmology surgery (cataract surgery), a laparoscopic surgery (cholecystectomy) and many demonstrators for PhD students. Later on, I left INRIA for the Korean Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) in Seoul (South Korea) as a Visiting Scientist. There, I was responsible for the simulation software module of a mechanical engineering team, developing medical devices and simulators. In 3 years, I could help to implement an other cholecystectomic surgery and an arthroscopic shoulder surgery, with tailor-made haptic devices. Moreover, I helped to apprehend SOFA framework.
Finally, in 2014, I came back at INRIA and joined back my previous team in Strasbourg to continue the framework’s evolution. I was first contributing to the Rasimas project for the loco-regional anesthesia, and now I am working mainly on the ADT (French government funding project) SOFA-OR, Sofa for the Operating Room.
