Raoul de Charette

Researcher @Inria
My research focuses on interpretable scene understanding from 2D image, 3D or multimodal data with an emphasis on vision in complex lighting and weather conditions. I lead the computer vision group Astra-vision, in the ASTRA team of Inria Paris. We have ongoing research on weakly- and un-supervised learning, physics-driven learning, 3D understanding, etc. spanning indoor/outdoor vision with a focus on autonomous driving. I am involved in most venues of the field, being also area chair (ECCV, IROS) and co-organizers of various events (ACVSS, WSCV, DLI, etc.). 

I obtained my Habilitation (HDR) in 2022, my PhD in 2012 from Mines Paris and also worked in Carnegie Mellon Uni. (2011), Mines Paris (2013), and Uni. of Makedonia (2014).
