About me






I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Interactive Graphics and Simulation Group (IGS) led by Prof. Matthias Harders  at the University of Innsbruck, Austria. Currently, I am working on a D-A-CH project “PROSUP” funded by the Austrian Science Fund FWF and the Swiss National Science Foundation SNSF on the analysis and simulation of the distal forearm stability during pro-supination for improved surgical planning.


Before, I was a researcher and teaching fellow at the University of Strasbourg, France where I fulfilled my PhD in computer science in the Computer Graphics and Geometry group (IGG) at the ICube laboratory, and was directed by Dr. Caroline Essert.


I am generally interested in most areas of computer graphics for surgical purposes. My primary area of research involves preoperative surgical tools in image-guided surgery. In particular, I focus on geometric constraints solving, physical simulation, and optimization techniques. The main domains on which I worked on are neurosurgery, percutaneous procedures, and currently forearm orthopedic surgery.
