François Anton is an Associate Professor at the Research
Division of Geodesy at the National Space Institute (DTU Space). He
moved from the research group on Computer Graphics and Image
Analysis of DTU Informatics.
He has a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of British
Columbia (U.B.C., Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada).
After defending his Ph. D. thesis titled "Voronoi diagrams of
semi-algebraic sets", François Anton started an Alberta
Ingenuity Fund Fellowship in Computer Graphics (implicit modelling
with semi-algebraic sets) at the Laboratory of Visual and
Interactive Computing (VIC) in the Department of Computer Science,
University of Calgary (Alberta, Canada).
During this post-doctoral fellowship, he proposed, created and
taught a new hybrid (undergraduate/graduate) course on spatial
databases at the Department of Computer Science at the University
He has worked extensively with generalised Voronoi diagrams and
Delaunay graphs and their applications to photogrammetry, spatial
databases and object reconstruction. François Anton's
research interests include photogrammetry, computational geometry,
interval analysis, computational algebra, computational algebraic
geometry, computer graphics, image reconstruction, spatial
databases and GIS.
Please note that the course 02288 Advanced Databases has
been renumbered: it is now 30535 Advanced Databases.
