Hello, my name is Luc Giffon.

I am a PhD. student in Machine Learning in the Qarma team under supervision of Hachem Kadri, Stéphane Ayache and Thierry Artières.

My research themes are Deep Learning and Kernel Methods. I aim at mixing those two families of methods in order to build "Deep Hierarchical Kernels" or to use Kernel Methods to augment or replace some layers of deep neural networks.
