Short bio: I got my PhD in 2006 from Grenoble Institute of Technology, Grenoble, France. I spent 2 years as a postdoc in the Helmholtz Zentrum München, Munich, Germany. I was hired as a permanent researcher by the CNRS in 2008. I spent 4 years in the GREYC, Caen, and 7 years at GIPSA-Lab, Grenoble. Since Nov. 2019, I am on leave from the CNRS and I am a Research Scientist in the Visual Computing Center of KAUST, Thuwal, Saudi Arabia.
