Elodie Fourquet

I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Computer Graphics Lab at the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science. My supervisor is Stephen Mann. I attended Bishop's University as an undergraduate where I studied physics and math before discovering computer science. I am originally from a small town in the foothills of the Pyrenees in France.

During my graduate studies at the University of Waterloo, I had multiple TA assignments, but also I had the opportunity to teach two undergraduate courses: CS251 -- a second year cs-major computer hardware, and CS200. -- a class for non-cs major students. I not only enjoyed teaching these courses and had a great time with my students, but also these experiences made me realize the great passion I have for teaching, which I want to pursue as a career. For more details on all my teaching activities, see Teaching.

My thesis research in graphics develops 2D methods to represent 3D. I like the multi-disciplinary side of graphics. I particularly enjoy studying art history and artistic practices as well as psychology. Creating picture is an human activity, the control should be in the hand of the user, who best knows how to affect his viewer.
