Dr. Kenneth Vanhoey

Researcher at ETH Zürich - Computer Vision Laboratory



I'm a post-doctoral researcher at ETH Zürich, Switzerland, in Luc Van Gool's group at the computer vision laboratory. I am funded by the ERC Grant 'Varcity'.

My interest lie with related fields in computer graphics and computer vision: texture synthesis, image processing (style transfer, image decomposition), image-based 3D reconstruction of geometry and/or aspect, etc. I'm currently also co-supervising the team around the Varcity project, focusing on leveraging a coherent ensemble from the numerous contributions made throughout the project.

Before, I fulfilled my PhD at the Strasbourg University (in the Computer Graphics and Geometry group of the ICube lab) in 2014 and did a first post-doctoral stay at Inria Sophia-Antipolis Méditerranée (George Drettakis' GraphDeco group) in the south of France. I mainly focused on complex aspect reconstruction of scanned 3D objects in the context of cultural heritage and real-time on-the-fly texture synthesis.

Collaborators I published with include (in reverse chronological order): Louis Lettry, Luc Van Gool, Oliver Mattausch and Orçun Göksel (ETH Zürich), Guillaume Lavoué, (LIRIS, Univ. Lyon), George Drettakis and Adrien Bousseau (Inria), Ian H. Jermyn (Durham University, UK), Fumio Okura (Osaka University, Japan), Alyosha Efros (UC Berkeley), Guillaume Gilet (Université de Limoges), Basile Sauvage, Frédéric Larue, Olivier Génevaux, and Jean-Michel Dischler (Université de Strasbourg).
I'm also part of an industrial partnership with the Splash VR startup, as a scientific advisor.

Besides my research activities, I am very fond of teaching and used to teach many bachelor-level courses in Computer Science at the University of Strasbourg and at Polytech Nice Sophia-Antipolis.
