Vincent Drouard

vincent I obtained an engineering degree (M.Sc.) in Applied mathematics from the University of Nice, France in September 2014. In December 2017, I received the Ph.D. degree in mathematics and computer science of the university of Grenoble Alpes (France), under the supervision of Pr. Radu Horaud.

My research interests include computer vision, signal processing and machine learning. I’m currently working on natural robot-humans interactions using audio-visual data.
