Personal Website


I am a postdoctoral researcher and teaching assistant in computer vision at Aix-Marseille Université. My current research focuses on the area of underwater image processing carried out at LIS UMR 7020 Laboratory. My teaching activities are within the Image et Systèmes master program and Polytech Marseille.

Short Bio

I hold a PhD degree in Computer Vision from Hubert-Curien laboratory, Jean Monnet University, Saint-Etienne (France). I defended my PhD entitled 3D Structure Estimation from Image Stream in Urban Environment in December 2014 under the supervision of Alain Térmeau, co-supervised by Désiré Sidibé at the University of Burgundy. A part of my PhD work was realized at Vision Lab, Heriot-Watt University(UK) under the supervision of Andrew M. Wallace.

Before, I have completed my masters in Computer Vision and Robotics (VIBOT) in 2011 at Heriot-Watt University (UK), University of Burgundy (France) and University of Girona (Spain). My master thesis is entitled A Visual Servoing Application for Autonomous Underwater Robotics. I also hold a master degree in information technology and web from the National Institute of Applied Science of Lyon (INSA Lyon) in 2009. During my studies I had the opportunity to work at several laboratories; LIS, Hubert Curien, VisionLab, VICOROB, OSL, LIRIS and L2I.
