Thibault is from Paris, France. After studying in California as a 6th grader, he grew up wanting to come to the U.S. to study. After finishing Preparatory School Thibault was interested in Computer Science and chose to join ISIMA, a French Engineering school, because of the amazing opportunity it offers: the possibility to get 2 M.S. degrees in Computer Science, one from ISIMA and one from The University of Oklahoma.
Thibault loves the Norman campus, the people, and the readily available technology to support his projects. What Thibault likes most about his CS classes is the fun but yet practical assignments he is assigned, from digitally restoring arts to developing artificial intelligence for games. He also likes that the graduate classes are very specific to student interests and allow for students to become specialized in one or various areas. Thibault is set to graduate with his OU M.S. in Spring2014.
Thibault’s primary interest is in image processing. He had the opportunity to intern with Philips, where he worked on a project involving a fast segmentation of ovaries on RMI image. He also interned at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in Australia, where he studied the registration of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) images. Thibault is currently completing his thesis under the supervision of Dr. McGovern entitled “Study of Formation and Evolution of Supercells on Simulated Data.”
After graduating, Thibault would like to become a Computer Vision Engineer either in the U.S., Canada, or Australia.
Outside of Computer Science, Thibault loves to travel, swim, play water polo, and cook. He speaks fluent French and English, some Spanish and the basics of Japanese, German, Latin, and Ancient Greek.
