Professor of Computer Science
Université de Rennes 1
After a PhD in computer science done at IRISA and defended in 1996 at the Université de Rennes 1. I spent one year as a Postdoctoral Associates in the AI lab of the Dpt of Computer Science at Yale University. I defended an Habilitation in Computer science in november 2004. I was an Inria research scientist (Chargé de recherche) at IRISA-INRIA Rennes (1997-2009). At IRISA, I have been a member of the Temis group (1993 to 1996), in the Vista group (1997 to 2003), in the Lagadic group (2004-2017). Since 2018, I am in the Rainbow group at IRISA (UMR 6074) and Inria Rennes.
Since november 2009, I am a full professor of Computer Science at Université de Rennes 1. I mainly teach in the École supérieure d’ingénieurs de Rennes (ESIR) where I leaded the Digital Imaging speciality (2012-2019). Starting 2018, I am the head of the “Digital Signals and Images, Robotics” department for IRISA Lab.
My research interests include robotics, perception strategies and especially the cooperation between perception and action within the visual servoing approach. I am also interested in computer vision and image processing for visual servoing application (object tracking). More recently I study new application fields such space robotics, augmented reality and virtual reality.
