Combining practice and theory: a path dedicated to innovation in both industry and research
Prior to becoming a professor at Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue (UQAT) in creation and new media, Erwan Davisseau could be found on the cutting edge of the Video-Gaming Empire. Over a 15-year span, this driven 3D creator developed and marketed roughly ten video games worldwide as an artist, team leader, and artistic producer.
Naturally, the Empire continues to guide Erwan and enrich his journey: “My career is geared toward university research, and I keep on top of industry practices.” As a result, he is pursuing – as passionately as ever – further development and innovation in modelling, sculpting, and texturing. “Because I love it,” he says, putting it in a nutshell, still as determined as ever to shoot for the stars and beyond!
