Ares Lagae

I am a Postdoctoral Fellow of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO).

I am working at the Computer Graphics Research Group of the Department of Computer Science at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, my promotor is Philip Dutré.

From 1 Oktober 2009 to 30 September 2010 I have been visiting the REVES research group of INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, hosted by George Drettakis.

I obtained my Ph. D. at the Computer Graphics Research Group of the Department of Computer Science at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, under the supervision of Philip Dutré, funded by a Ph. D. fellowship of the Research Foundation - Flanders (FWO).
