Speaker: Élie Michel

Research Scientist @Adobe

After graduating its PhD in Computer Graphics at Institut Polytechnique de Paris, Élie Michel joined Adobe as a Research Scientist, where he continuously looks for new innovative ways to bring the power of today's hardware to creatives willing to interactively author complex virtual scenes. His double-background in both theoretical Computer Science and applied Computer Arts enables him to design tools using state-of-the-art techniques while remaining user-oriented. His interest for WebGPU grew with his permanent need to develop interactive prototypes, but also while teaching Computer Graphics to students who are tomorrow's graphics programmers.
