Computer vision researcher. Research field: computer vision algorithms, objects recognitions, scene segmentation, deep learning, vision in bad weather, Hand gesture & Pose estimation, 2D & 3D processing (rgb, depth, point clouds).


At Inria RITS team, I have initiated research axes of computer vision applied to autonomous driving. I lead a group of Computer Vision students/engineers with ongoing subjects on deep learning vision, physic-based vision, vision in adverse conditions, 3D reconstruction, reinforcement learning, etc.

I’ve also worked in the Centre for Robotics of Mines ParisTech [2008-2012] (France), in the Ilim Team of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon Uni. [2011] (USA) and at Uni. of Makedonia [2014] (Greece).
