Short Bio I received a Master degree in Intelligent Systems from the University of Toulouse, France, in 2007. During my master I studied at the University of Plymouth, England, at the University of Calgary, Canada, and at the Technical University of Berlin, Germany. From 2008 to 2011, I worked toward the Ph.D. degree in the LaBRI at the University of Bordeaux in collaboration with MIRANE S.A.S. Then, I obtained a Lecturer / Researcher (ATER) position in Bordeaux: I taught at the ENSEIRB and worked as a researcher at the LaBRI. I then worked as a postdoc at the University of Amsterdam (UVA) at the Intelligent System Lab (ISLA) for one year, at the University of Caen, in the image team of the GREYC lab for another year, and at INRIA Rennes in the Texmex/Linkmedia Team. I'm now Assistant professor at Ecole Centrale Marseille and belong to the QARMA team at LIS

Research Interest I have been working on motion detection, object tracking, human behavior analysis, semantic interpretation of behavior, and scenario recognition during my PhD. Then, I have been working on two main projects. The first project uses computer vision for Immersive Virtual Music Orchestra. The second is about image classification using machine learning techniques. I am now working on classification and retrieval and have been studying mid-level features learning and recognition.
