I am an Associate Professor (maître de conférences) at Université d'Auvergne, and part of the thème G4, Axe MAAD of LIMOS (UMR 6158).

I defended my PhD thesis on October 22nd, 2009 at LIMOS (Clermont-Ferrand, France) with Vincent Barra. The subject of my PhD was “Tools for tiling surfaces”. See also the illustrations page. I spent one year as post-doctoral research associate at the IMATI - CNR (Genova, Italy). I was recruted in September 2010 as maître de conférences at the Université d'Auvergne, and my first assignment was at the ISIT (UMR 6284 UdA – CNRS).

Research interests

  • Keywords: unfolding, cutting, tilling, topology, geometry, expert knowledge modelization.
  • Applicative contexts: medical imaging, computer graphics.

During my PhD thesis thesis in 2006-2009, I focused on questions of cutting and tiling surfaces, integrating topological, geometrical and combinatorial constraints on the tiles. During these years, I designed algorithms using edge-based paths. I explored various applications, from medical imaging to computer graphics.

During my post-doc, I worked with the IMATI members on tiling/segmentation methods on surfaces, mainly using scalar functions and algorithms using piecewise-linear paths. I was also interested on working with semantic descriptors and/or expert knowledge to work on automatic labelling and/or classification.

Since September 2011, I am associate professor at ISIT, I joint the ALCoV team. I am now focusing my work on medical imaging contexts, especially on pre-operative images like MRI, with the aim to extract surfaces from the voxel description, integrating expert knowledge, topological and geometrical constraints.

I was radio presenter in a french radio show named science alors !, and I made a couple of columns about mathematics (in french).

I'm currently producing a serie of three creative sound radio shows (Interface, in french) about technical practice in a research activity.

Tools for research

I've created a small tool to facilitate search in scientific articles, with a common search form for multiple search engines: http://jmfavreau.info/search/
