Benoit Massé

I am a PhD student within the PERCEPTION team at INRIA under the supervisision of Dr. Radu Horaud. The main focus of my research is on the Gaze Direction for social interaction, ie where do people look at, and how to use this information to perform social Human-Robot interactions. The fields of interest include scene understanding, machine learning, computer vision and robotics.

I obtained an engineer’s degree in Applied mathematics and computer science from the Ensimag Institut polytechnique de Grenoble , France in 2013, and a master’s degree in Graphics, Vision and Robotics from Université Grenoble-Alpes (Formerly Université Joseph Fourier), France, in 2014.
