Find me on :

Since October 2019, I am a full-time CNRS researcher (chargé de recherche) in the Morpheme team at the I3S laboratory in Sophia-Antipolis, France.

Before that, I was a Lecteur Hadamard research fellow funded by the FMJH working at the CMAP, École Polytechnique, a post-doctoral Marie-Skłodowska Curie fellow at the University of Genova and a PhD student at the Cambridge Image Analysis research group.

My research focuses on the development of analytical models and efficient algorithms for mathematical image processing. My main research topics are:

  • variational models and PDEs for imaging

  • non-smooth optimisation

  • biomedical image processing and analysis

  • digital restoration of artworks

  • bio-inspired models for vision

Ongoing projects

  • ANR PRC MICROBLIND - Blind inverse problems and optical microscopy. PI: P. Weiss (CNRS, IMT).

  • International Emerging Action (IEA) CNRS project VaMOS - Variable-Metric and inexact sparse Optimisation for Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy. PI with S. Rebegoldi (University of Florence).

  • CNRS PRIME: Imag’IN - Analysis of transformation and destruction processes of painted images and relations between images and texts. PI with R. M. Dessì (CEPAM, UCA).


  • MIVA: I am the responsible of the thematic group MIVA (Mathematics of Imaging, Vision and Applications) labelled by the Mathematical Italian Union (UMI). Click here for more information.

  • Special issue in Inverse Problems IOP: together with S. Rebegoldi (University of Florence) and M. Bertero (University of Genova), I am responsible of a topical special issue of the Inverse Problems journal on Optimisation and learning methods for inverse problems in microscopy imaging. See here for more details. Deadline for submissions: June 2022.

  • MIA-MIVA workshop: together with the French RT MIA, we co-organise a workshop in Sophia-Antipolis with the idea of fostering collaborations and favouring the scientific exchange between the two communities. Visit the workshop website for more information. Deadline for submitting contributions: July 14 2022.

  • !! SSVM 2023 !!: Together with M. Donatelli, S. Morigi, M. Prato, G. Rodriguez, M. Santacesaria, we co-organise the 9th edition of the international Scale Space and Variational Methods in Computer Vision (SSVM) conference at Hotel Flamingo, Santa Margherita di Pula, IT in the period May 21-25 2023.
