Research Topics

  • Semantic Activity Recognition and Behavior Understanding: study of methods to automatically recognize human activities and to assess human performance to identify relevant changes in behavioral patterns.
  • Multimodal Activity Recognition: study of strategies to combine data/information from homogeneous and heterogeneous sensors to infer complex human activities.
  • Animal Behavior Recognition: automatic recognition of animal behaviors and the identification of relevant behavioral patterns.


You may find below a list of project I participate/have participated :

Dem@care logo AutoBehave project (2019-2023), which I am the PI, is a partnership among LAET, LESCOT, LBMC, and LIRIS laboratories. Its goal is to investigate the behaviors of passengers of autonomous vehicles during daily trajects using a multi-sensor approach. This project is funded by the grant "Pack Ambition Recherche 2019" from the region Rhône Alpes in France.
Dem@care logo Dem@care project (2011-2015) aspires to contribute to the timely diagnosis, assessment, maintenance and promotion of self-independence of people with dementia, by deepening the understanding of how the disease affects their everyday life and behaviour [Dem@care website, April 2013]. For more information, please visit the project official website here.
SafEE logo SafEE (Safe Easy Environment, 2015-2017) project is a ANR TecSan project which is funded by the French agency "l'Agence Nationale de Recherche et la Caisse Nationale de Solidarité pour l'Autonomie". It seeks to improve the safety, the autonomy and life quality of seniors that are likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease and related pathologies. More information here.
