is associate professor (Maître de Conférences, HDR)
at INSA de Lyon and LIRIS, a CNRS laboratory, since sept. 2005.
He is interested in machine learning and computer vision, especially the visual analysis of complex scenes in motion. His work puts an emphasis on modelling complex interactions of a large amount of variables: deep learning, structured models, and graphical models.
Since September 2017 he is partially on leave at the chroma work group
and the CITI Laboratory, where he is interested in the connections between machine learning and control.
He received his MSc in computer science from TU Vienna, Austria, in 2000, and a PhD in computer science from INSA de Lyon, France, in 2003. In 2012 he obtained the habilitation diploma, also from INSA de Lyon. He is currently the national project coordinator of ANR/NSERC project Deepvision “Learning highly complex visual problems with deep structured models” (9/2016-3/2020); he has coordinated the INSA-Lyon partner of ANR Canada (2007-2010) and PIA Interabot (2012-2016). He is member of the scientific committee of GDR IA and member of the directing committee of GDR ISIS and co-leader of the topic "Machine Learning". He has supervised 10 defended PhD theses.
