About me

I am a fourth year PhD student in the Realistic Graphics Lab at EPFL, supervised by Wenzel Jakob. Prior to joining EPFL, I studied at École polytechnique and Télécom Paris. As part of my Master studies, I interned in George Drettakis's team at Inria Sophia-Antipolis, where I worked on Image-Based Rendering.

My research currently focuses on designing robust differentiable rendering algorithms to solve challenging inverse problems involving light transport.



  • An easily integrable Cholesky solver on CPU and GPU.

  • Implementation of our paper, 'Large Steps in Inverse Rendering of Geometry' in PyTorch. The main method is implemented as a PyTorch custom operator and we provide scripts to reproduce most experiments from the paper.

  • Mitsuba integration add-on for Blender
