Dr Yann Savoye

School of Computer Science and Mathematics

Dr Yann Savoye is a Lecturer in Computer Science (Computer Games Development) in the Department of Computer Science at Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU). Previously, he was a Lecturer in Computer Science in the School of Computing Science and Digital Media (CSDM) at the Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland from 2017 to 2019. In November 2017, he became fellow of the Higher Education Academy in United Kingdom. He received a BSc in Computer Science from University Claude Bernard Lyon 1, a MSc. in Computer Science with Honors from INSA-Lyon, University Claude Bernard Lyon 1 and Ecole Centrale of Lyon, France. In 2012, he earned a PhD degree from University of Bordeaux (France) with highest honors. In addition, he was teaching assistant at University of Bordeaux from 2009 to 201 and temporary teaching assistant at ENSEIRB engineering school. He was visiting researcher at University of Porto in Portugal from March to May 2013 and IT Porto. In 2013, he collaborated at Ben Gurion University of the Negev (in Israel) and Shandong University (in China) as post-doctoral researcher. From 2014 to 2016, he was post-doc researcher in Visual Computing at the University of Innsbruck (Austria). He is a member of ACM, ACM SIGGRAPH since 2009, and Eurographics from 2009 to 2012.
