From September 2002 to May 2007, I prepared a PhD in the Laplace group of the e-Motion team, in the GRAVIR laboratory, at INRIA Rhône-Alpes, in Grenoble. I defended my PhD in April 2007. I have worked under the supervision of Pierre Bessière and Olivier Lebeltel.
I am interested in writing Bayesian models to control autonomous synthetic characters such as those in computer games. One outstanding advantage of the Bayesian approach is that is allows a human player to teach a behaviour to a character controlled by the computer.
