Research

Works during the thesis and the first years in the Associate Professor position were related to modeling and global illumination (VOXAR project, a parallel architecture dedicated to ray-tracing then radiosity, i.e. a progressive radiosity extended to specular environments). Since 1996, I was involved in Virtual Reality, in particular the aspects relating to the 3D interactions and distributed virtual reality, with applications to collaborative virtual prototyping and interoperability in collaborative distributed simulations. Then I initiated works in computer animation to animate virtual environments with the objective to establish the link between works in virtual reality and those carried out by another group of the team involved in behavioral simulation.

My current works include animated and interactive virtual/augmented (distributed or mobile) environments and their applications to virtual prototyping, collaborative engineering, cultural heritage and serious games.
