My name’s Nolan Mestres. I’m a third year PhD student within Maverick research team (Jean Kuntzmann Laboratory, Inria Grenoble), under the supervision of Joëlle Thollot and Romain Vergne. I focus my work on expressive rendering and image stylization, taking inspiration from the case study of the haind-painted panorama maps of Pierre Novat. I graduated in 2018 with a Master’s degree in Computer Graphics & Image Analysis from Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse, France). I did my graduation internship under the supervision of Imari Sato, at the National Institute of Informatics (Tokyo, Japan), working on spectral rendering and fluorescence.
