I am a permanent CNRS research scientist (a.k.a Chargé de Recherche),
working in the IMAGE team
at the GREYC Laboratory, in Caen / France.
I'm particularly interested in PDE's and variational methods for processing multi-valued images in a local or non-local way. Check my list of publications and my online slides for more details about my research work.
Short Bio: I am a former student of ESSI, an engineer school in Sophia-Antipolis/France, specialized in computer sciences (now called PolyTech'Nice). Since 1999, I have been interested in applied mathematics for image processing, and their numerous applications. I wrote my PhD thesis on Multivalued Image Regularization with PDE's, in the Odyssée Lab (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis) under the supervision of Rachid Deriche and defended it on december 2002. During 2003, I did a one-year post-doctoral immersion into the wonderful world of DT-MRI imaging, using variational methods : estimation, regularization, visualization, etc. DT-MRI is very interesting since it allows to compute fiber networks in the white matter of the brain. From March to July 2004, I've made a post-doc at the L3I lab, in the University of La Rochelle, working for the european project PRESTOSPACE. I've been interested in movie restoration and desinterlacing, using tensor geometry, motion estimation and inpainting methods. In October 2004, I've been finally hired as a permanent CNRS researcher in the IMAGE team of the GREYC Laboratory, in Caen. In October 2018, I defended my Habilitation thesis (Habilitation à diriger les recherches).
