Research Interests

My research interest focuses on smart tools to assist the creation of complex 3D contents by mixing Computer Graphics and Artificial Intelligence techniques.

I am currently working on automated and assistive camera control techniques for interactive environments. More precisely:


2016 Our workshop papers " Analysing Elements of Styles from Annotated Film Clips ", " Design of an Intelligent Navigation System for Participative Computer Animation " and " Using ECPs for Interactive Applications in Virtual Cinematography " presented at WICED 2017, during Eurographics 2016 Our paper " Trip Synopsis: 60km in 60 sec " accepted at Pacific Graphics 2016!
2016 Our paper " A Cognitive-Based Model of Flashbacks for Computational Narratives " accepted at AIIDE 2016!
