About me

I am a French Computer Vision and Machine Learning researcher currently a Postdoctoral researcher in the DVMM Lab at Columbia University. Previously, I have spent three great years at the MICC (Media Integration and Communication Center) of the University of Florence in Italy.

Research themes

My research themes are image and video analysis, computer vision and machine learning. I am particularly interested in semantic concepts recognition in images and videos.

I have made my PhD at the LaBRI – University of Bordeaux, under the supervision of Jenny Benois-Pineau and Rémi Mégret. During my PhD thesis, I have worked on human activities recognition by Hidden Markov Models (HMM) in videos recorded from a wearable device within the IMMED project. I have also developed an object recognition approach in the Bag-of-Visual-Words framework which integrates spatial information within semi-local features: the Graph-Words. I defended my PhD entitled “Indexing of Activities in Wearable Videos : Application to Epidemiological Studies of Aged Dementia” in 2011.

While at the MICC, I have been highly involved in the MNEMOSYNE project. In this project multiple aspects of computer vision such as person detection, person tracking and re-identification are used to passively profile the interests of visitors in a museum to provide personalized multimedia content delivery. I was also still working on more general image and video classification problems.

I have joined the DVMM Lab where I will be working on face recognition and hashing for image retrieval problems.
