Dr. Bosché’s main research focus until now has been on the extraction of as-built information from data and its visualization for construction and facility management. Such information is critical to decision making and project delivery, and its visualization is important for effective communication among project stakeholders.

Frédéric graduated in 2004 with a MSc degree in Construction Engineering and Project Management from the University of Texas, Austin as well as a MEng degree in Engineering from the Ecole Centrale de Lille, France.

After a short period of work in the construction industry in France, he then returned to university and obtained a PhD in Civil Engineering from the University of Waterloo, Canada in 2008.

He then joined the Computer Vision group of ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where he worked for two years on multiple projects with focus on image-based 3D reconstruction for urban and Cultural Heritage modelling (FP7 3D-COFORM and V-City projects).

In 2011, Frédéric became a Lecturer at the Institute of Building and Urban Design within the School of the Built Environment at Heriot-Watt University.
