Short Bio

I received a Master degree in Intelligent Systems from the University of Toulouse, France, in 2007. During my master I studied at the University of Plymouth, England, at the University of Calgary, Canada, and at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany. From 2008 to 2011, I worked toward the Ph.D. degree in the LaBRI at the University of Bordeaux in collaboration with MIRANE S.A.S. Then, I obtained a Lecturer / Researcher (ATER) position in Bordeaux: I taught at the ENSEIRB-MATMECA and worked as a researcher at the LaBRI. I then worked as a postdoc at the University of Amsterdam (UVA) at the Intelligent System Lab (ISLA), at the University of Caen, in the image team of the GREYC lab, and at INRIA Rennes in the Linkmedia Team. I’m now Assistant professor at Ecole Centrale Marseille and belong to the QARMA team at LIS
