Short Bio:

I am a Principal Scientist and project leader at the Imaging Science lab at Technicolor, Rennes, France. I received M.S. and M.Phil. degrees in signal and image processing respectively from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electricité et de Mécanique (ENSEM) and Nancy University, France, in 2005 and the Advanced Master degree in signal, image processing and pattern recognition from Telecom ParisTech, France, in 2006. I worked almost five years at Vitec as a research engineer, actively contributing to innovative European collaborative research projects around image and video processing in real time environments. I joined Technicolor video formats and coding team as a researcher in September 2011, working on HEVC video codec standardization.

I am currently contributing to Ultra HD format (4K/HDR/WCG) definition with proposals in majors video standardization committees: MPEG, Blu-ray Disc Association, SMPTE, DVB, CTA, HDMI, ETSI... with 60+ contributions.

 

Research interests:

  • Video formats and coding
  • Digital video worfklows and signal representation
  • Colour Science
