Yutong Ban is a Ph.D. student in PERCEPTION team at INRIA since 10/2015, directed by Dr.Radu Horaud. He received his Engineer’s degree in computer vision from Télécom Saint Etienne (France) in 2015. He received his Bachelor’s degree in telecommunication engineering from Xidian University, China in 2013. He’s currently conducting his research on audio-visual speaker tracking and diarization.

His research interests include probabilistic modeling, variational inference, audio-visual tracking and diarization, visual servoing , and stereo-depth fusion.

His publication list can be found in publications and Google scholar.
