I am currently a Postdoc researcher at INRIA Rennes , where I will be conducting research on volumetric human representation and animation with MimeTic Team .

My research interests are in 3D Computer Vision/Graphics, Multi-view Performance Capture, Human-Computer Interaction, and Video-Based Character Animation to facilitate applications for the creative industry.

I completed my PhD from the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing at the University of Surrey. The title of my thesis is Learning to Animate Volumetric Video, where I address the problem of video realistic character animation and real-time interaction using learning-based methods for immersive and virtual environments.

I joined Vertual Ltd in 2014 to develop Virtual Reality simulation software in radiation therapy. Previously, I received my M.Sc. degree from the University of Hull (UK).
