Hi ! My name is Hugo (pronounced Ügo for german speakers), I’m from Belgium, but probably not the bit you are thinking of. I grew up next to Luxembourg and France, and so actually not that far from Saarland. My native language is thus French, but I hope to become trillingual by the time I finish my PhD !

After getting a master’s degree in Sciences Informatiques at the University of Namur, I decided to pursue a computer graphics career, and end up, naturally, working on compilers. Any jokes aside, I do enjoy what I do very much, I work on the AnyDSL research project and more generally (optimising) compilers and programming models, but still with the perspective of computer graphics. I also have an interest acceleration structures, which were the topic of my master thesis.

Outside of typical computer-related interests, I have an interest in the automotive world, including classic, obscure or modified cars, and working on them myself.
