About

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. My research themes are image and video analysis. 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. Since joining the MICC in 2012, 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 am also still working on more general image and video classification problems.
