Research Field: pattern recognition and semantic networks
l Ecole polytechnique (member of ParisTech), Palaiseau, France, Engineer degree, Signal processing, From 09/2001 to 08/2004
l Paris VI, Paris, France, Master degree, image processing, From 09/2004 to 09/2005
l Telecom ParisTech, PhD, image processing, From 09/2005 to 09/2008
I graduated from Ecole polytechnique (ranked number one amongst French universities, equivalent in honor to Harvard University, belongs toParisTech). Then, I completed an MSc in “artificial intelligence and pattern recognition” with Paris VI University (which has been ranked 39th in the 2010 Shanghai ranking), and finally I achieved my PhD in “signal processing” with Telecom ParisTech University (belongs toParisTech).
My expert field of research is pattern recognition and semantic networks. The main achievement of my MSc was the elaboration and implementation of a processing program which aims to detect shape within image (such as factories, roundabouts, stadiums…). I consequently published an article in ISPRS (reference 1 below).
During my PhD, my main topic was the association of semantic labels to high-resolution satellite images for efficient requests in huge databases. In particular, I developed a program based on a method to build automatically a request engine by learning a semantic label from an annotated database of images. In addition, the program allows request from the semantic labels database in order to find the corresponding image. I published two articles on these issues, in MLDM and BMVC (reference 2 and 3 below).
I then worked as a post doc student for Université de Technologie de Compiègne, Heudiasyc Laboratory, I was concerned with basic research with experimental work targeting advancement in methods and technologies towards the improvement of intelligent vehicle perception for safer international use and lower environmental impact. I am primarily investigating an adaptation of visual grammars with belief functions theory.
In my current position, I am a member of the team of “Computer Science and System Engineering Laboratory” at ENSTA ParisTech, I am mainly concerned with scene segmentation and object instance recognition algorithms for mobile robots. I am also associate Dean of Studies at Ecole Polytechnique, and I am in charge of the coordination of the academic contributions of the member schools of SJTU-ParisTech Elite Institute of Technology for the definition of its cursus and teaching activities.
