Andreas is Chief Executive Officer. Andreas founded GeometryFactory in 2003 in order to commercialize the technology accumulated through a series of European research projects developing the CGAL library. He obtained his PhD in computer science from Ecole des Mines de Paris, while working in the Geometrica research group at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. Andreas is involved in the CGAL project since it started in 1996.
Laurent is co-author of several CGAL mesh generation packages. He obtained his PhD in computer science from University Paris Diderot (Paris 7). During his PhD studies Laurent worked at the Geometrica research group at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis.
Sébastien is co-author of several CGAL packages and is mainly working on various operations on polyhedral surfaces. He obtained his PhD in Mathematics from University of Burgundy. During his PhD studies, Sébastien worked first within the Geometrica and then ABS research groups at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis.
Jane is co-author of the CGAL tetrahedral mesh generator, as she worked on mesh quality improvement during her PhD studies. She obtained her PhD in Computer Science from the University of Nice. During her PhD studies, Jane worked within the Geometrica research group at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. She then spent a year as a post-doctoral research assistant at the Technical University of Vienna.
Mael is a CIFRE PhD student working on anisotropic mesh generation under the supervision of Jane Tournois and Jean-Daniel Boissonnat from the Geometrica research group at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis. He obtained his master’s degree in applied mathematics from the Pierre et Marie Curie University (UPMC Paris 6).
Thijs van Lankveld
Thijs is author of the Scale-Space Reconstruction package and is working on extending the CGAL 3D triangulation package. He obtained his PhD in computer science at Utrecht University. During his PhD studies, Thijs worked within the Multimedia and Geometry group at Utrecht University. He then spent two years as a post-doctoral researcher at the Titane group at INRIA Sophia-Antipolis.
