Short Bio:

I am a senior scientist at Technicolor Research & Innovation France. I received PhD degree from Rennes University and joined Thomson in 1986 as a research engineer.
My main activities have concerned the development of algorithms of image sequence processing in particular motion estimation and frame interpolation, detection, segmentation and tracking of objects, color correction, inpainting, shape from motion. They have also concerned stereo, multiview and multisensor processing and fusion for 3D reconstruction and modeling.

These techniques have been developed in the context of various applications including : videophone coding, HDTV standard conversion, de-flickering, logo removal, traffic surveillance, navigation in 3D models of real scenes, 3D TV and 3D content creation. I contributed to several European projects in video and 3D processing in the past. I am author or co-author of 40 papers and about 30 patents. I am now working in developing algorithms in stereo/multiview and 2D to 3D conversions.

Research interests:

Image sequence analysis and processing : motion estimation, trajectories, interpolation, segmentation, inpainting, de-flickering
3D video analysis and modeling : shape from motion, disparity estimation, interpolation, navigation, multi-view processing and fusion
