My name is Francesco Banterle, and I am a researcher in the field of Computer Graphics working at the Visual Computing Lab ISTI-CNR. Before joining the Visual Computing Lab, I worked as researcher in Arup Ltd for an internship, and previously I worked for University of Warwick as HDR technology leader and main programmer.
My main research fields are High Dynamic Range Imaging (acquisition, tone mapping, HDR video compression, and HDR monitors), Rendering (Raytracing, Real-Time Rendering, and Global Illumination), and Parallel Processing (GPUs and shared memory systems).
I am working on a new C++11 imaging library, called Piccante.
My book on High Dynamic Range Imaging is out; it is titled "Advanced High Dynamic Range Imaging: Theory and Practice". Please have a look at it!
