Teaching Assistant

I have been a teaching assistant for the following courses:

COMP 557 Fundamentals of Computer Graphics (Fall 2010)
COMP 557 Fundamentals of Computer Graphics (Fall 2011)
COMP 557 Fundamentals of Computer Graphics (Fall 2012)
COMP 559 Fundamentals of Computer Animation (Winter 2014)

Here are some pitfalls students should avoid in order to improve the performance of their assignment code. Strive to write cleaner, faster code!

Paper Discussion Group

I often help to organize reading and discussion groups on the latest papers being published at computer graphics and animation conferences. To be notified of upcoming meetings, subscribe to the Google calendar or join the mailing list.


I co-organized the 2012 Montreal Fall Graphics Retreat and 2013 Montreal Fall Graphics Retreat. The latter event was held as a GRAND Cafe.
