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

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