Romain Vergne
Romain Vergne
Nominé par le comité (2021)
Romain Vergne is associate professor at the University of Grenoble Alpes (UGA), member of the Jean Kunztmann Laboratory (LJK) and part of the Maverick Inria research team since 2012. He received his PhD in 2010 at the University of Bordeaux where he worked on novel expressive rendering techniques to better depict 3D object shapes through shading and lines. He then moved in the psychological department of the Justus Liebig University of Giessen (Germany) to study color constancy and shape perception with K. R. Gegenfurtner and R. FLeming until 2012. His current research interests focus on designing intuitive and predictive appearance models to create or edit relevant perceptual cues in 2D images or 3D scenes. He is co-responsible of the GT-Rendu since 2017 and has served in program committees of national and international conferences (AFIG, SIBGRAPPI, EGSR).

He received is PhD in 2012 at the University of Bordeaux/Inria, and was post-doctoral researcher at University College London and at the University of Toulouse. He is specially interested in point-based geometry processing and shape analysis. He is implicated in reproducible research: he is co-author of the replicability.graphics initiative, member of the program committee of the Graphics Replicability Stamp Initiative, and member of the Scientific Committee of the Workshop on Reproducible Research in Pattern Recognition since 2016. He serves in the program committees of international conferences SMI, CASA and EurasiaGraphics. He is member of the of the Eurographics French Chapter Administration Committee since 2018.

Julie Digne
Julie Digne
Nominée par le CA (2020)
Julie Digne is a CNRS researcher specialized in geometry processing and shape analysis, in particular when the surfaces are represented as point clouds. This includes surface denoising, mesh reconstruction and machine learning approaches for geometric data. She started working on those topics during her PhD (2007-2010) with Jean-Michel Morel at ENS Cachan, for which she received a PhD award from the Fondation Hadamard. She pursued on these topics at INRIA Sophia Antipolis (Geometrica team) with Pierre Alliez and colleagues from Caltech. In October 2012, she joined the LIRIS lab at Université Lyon 1. She defended her Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches in September 2018 at Université Lyon 1.

Adrien Peytavie
Adrien Peytavie
Nominé par le comité (2019)
Adrien Peytavie is associate professor at University Lyon 1 and member of the LIRIS laboratory. He defended his PhD on Procedural Generation of Worlds in 2010 and was recruited as Research Professor at University Lyon 1 in 2011. He currently teaches at the Institute of Technology of Lyon1 at Bourg-en-Bresse. In this context, he took on several responsibilities including the management of a Professional License for several years. His research focuses on the creation of complex virtual worlds including terrain, landscapes, and even cities. The main scientific obstacles dealt with the improvement of the realism of virtual scenes, the scaling up of scenes, and all methods rely on intuitive user control. He is also involved in national graphic computing associations. He has been an elected member of the French Association of Graphic Computing (AFIG) since 2013 and is an elected member of the Eurographics French Chapter Administration Committee since 2018.

Mélina Skouras
Mélina Skouras
Junior fellow EG (2019)
Mélina Skouras is a permanent researcher in the ANIMA (formerly IMAGINE) team team at Inria Grenoble, France, where she works on forward and inverse modeling of physical systems. Until October 2017, she was a postdoctoral associate at MIT where she worked with Prof. Wojciech Matusik on the computational design of meta-materials. Mélina obtained her PhD in 2014 from the Computer Graphics Laboratory of ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where she collaborated with Disney Research Zurich. Her thesis focused on the development of novel algorithms for the design of custom deformable objects. Mélina received her Master’s degree in Computer Science and Applied Mathematics from ENSIMAG, INP Grenoble, France, in 2004. Before starting her PhD, Mélina was a software developer at Dassault Systèmes, in the CATIA Geometric Modeler team.

Maks Ovsjanikov
Maks Ovsjanikov
Junior fellow EG (2017)
Maks Ovsjanikov is a Professor at Ecole Polytechnique in France. He works on 3D shape analysis with emphasis on shape matching and correspondence. He has received a Eurographics Young Researcher Award in 2014 “in recognition of his outstanding contributions to theoretical foundations of non-rigid shape matching”. He has served on the technical program committees of international conferences including SIGGRAPH and SIGGRAPH Asia, as a member of the editorial board of Computer Graphics Forum and has co-chaired the Symposium on Geometry Processing in 2016. In 2017 he received an ERC Starting Grant from the European Commission and in 2018 he received the Bronze Medal from the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) for research contributions in Computer Science.
