Frédéric is an assistant professor ("Maître de Conférence") at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis, France, since 2006. He is with the I3S laboratory (joint CNRS/UNS lab.), and teachs Networks and Telecommunications at bachelor levels (IUT Réseaux et Télécoms). Member of the Mediacoding group, his research is focused on geometry processing in the context of the 3D digitization chain. His objective is the improvement of this chain, by optimizing storage, transmission, management and visualisation of surfaces and volume meshes, and points clouds. 
Keywords: semi-regular (re)meshing, surface sampling, multiresolution analysis, geometry compression, LOD visualisation...

Frédéric received the MS degree in image processing and computer science in 1999 and the PhD degree in signal and image processing in December 2004 from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (France). The work for his PhD was supported by a grant from the region Provence Alpes Côte d’Azur and Opteway Corporation in Sophia Antipolis (France). He was also a research and teaching assistant at the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis from 2004 to 2005, and postdoctoral researcher from 2005 to 2006 at the Lab LJK (CNRS) at Grenoble (France).

From 2007 to 2008, he was the leader of a young researchers projects of the GDR ISIS named "Analyse Multirésolution d'Objets 3D Animés".
From 2010 to 2012, he was an active member of a second young researchers projects of the GDR ISIS named "Compression et transmission adaptatives de maillages 3D".
He is also from 2009 one of the animators of the researrch axis "Meshes and 3D animations" for the GDR ISIS. In this context he organized 5 seminars (topic: the 3D numerization chain) between 2010 and 2015. More information here.
