Short bio

I received an Engineering degree in Applied Mathematics from the National Institute of Applied Sciences (INSA), Rouen, France, in 2000, and a Ph.D. degree in Cognitive Sciences from the University of Bordeaux, France, in 2007. Since 2007, I have been working as a Researcher at Orange Labs, where my research interests include multimedia indexing, deep learning and computer-human interaction.
