Find me on :

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

Before that, I was a Lecteur Hadamard research fellow funded by the FMJH and 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 is concerned with the development of analytical models and efficient algorithms for mathematical image processing. It includes:

  • variational models and PDEs for imaging;

  • non-smooth optimisation;

  • biomedical imaging;

  • digital restoration of artworks;

  • cortical-inspired modelling for vision.

Ongoing projects

  • 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).

  • UCA JEDI IDEX Arch-AI-story on the connections between art, images and mathematics. PI: I. Théry-Parisot.

  • ANR JCJC RUBIN-VASE: RedUndancy-free neuro-BIological desigN of Visual and Auditory SEnsing. PI: Dario Prandi.


I am the responsible of the thematic group MIVA (Mathematics of Imaging, Vision and Applications) labelled by the Mathematical Italian Union (UMI).
