Radu’s research interests cover computational vision, audio signal processing, audio-visual scene analysis, machine learning, and robotics. He is the author of over 200 scientific publications. Radu pioneered work in computer vision using range data (or depth images) and developed a number of principles and methods at the cross-roads of computer vision and robotics. In 2006, he started to develop audio-visual fusion and recognition techniques in conjunction with human-robot interaction. He is an area editor for the Computer Vision and Image Understanding (Elsevier), a member of the advisory board for the International Journal of Robotics Research (Sage), and an associated editor for the International Journal of Computer Vision (Kluwer-Springer). In 2001 he was program co-chair of the IEEE Eighth International Conference on Computer Vision (ICCV’01) and in 2015 he was program co-chair of the 17th ACM International Conference on Multimodal Interaction (ICMI’15). Radu Horaud was the scientific coordinator of the European Marie Curie network VISIONTRAIN (2005-2009), STREP projects POP (2006-2008) and HUMAVIPS (2010-2013), and the principal investigator of a collaborative project between INRIA and Samsung’s Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) on computer vision algorithms for 3D television (2010-2013). In 2013 he was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for his five year project VHIA (2014-2019). In 2015 he received a three year grant (joinlty with Florence Forbes) from Xerox University Affairs Committee.
