I am a professor at the Interactive Data Visualization group (part of the DEVI team) of the French Civil Aviation University (ENAC) in Toulouse, France. I am also an associate researcher at the research center for the French Military Air Force Test Center (CReA).
In 2010, i received my PhD in Computer Science from the Toulouse university and in 2014 i got my HDR (Habilitation à Diriger des Recherche).

My research cover information visualization (InfoVis) and human-computer interaction (HCI), especially the visualization of multivariate data in space and time. I also investigate the design of scalable visual interfaces and the development of pixel based rendering techniques.
Throughout my career I have been involved with several projects including: large data exploration tools, graph simplifications (edge bundling), paper based interactions, augmented reality, 3D visualization...
As an professor, I disseminate my knowledge to students in various places and at different stage of their training (engineer students, master students). My lecture topics are the one close to my research investigations: computer graphics and interactive big data visualization.
