My research focuses on deep scene understanding from 2D images or 3D data (stereo, lidar, etc.), with an emphasis on vision in bad weather. In Inria RITS team, I lead a computer vision group with ongoing subjects on unsupervised domain adaptation, physics-driven learning, GANs, reinforcement learning, 3D reconstruction, segmentation, vision in adverse weather, etc. Most researches are applied to vision for outdoor vision and autonomous driving.
In the past I’ve worked in Centre for Robotics of Mines ParisTech [2008-2012] (France), in the Ilim Team of the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon Uni.  (USA) and at Uni. of Makedonia  (Greece).
