I am currently a Visiting Researcher at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.

My research is in the areas of Computer vision and Machine Learning, more recently in Computational Photography. More specifically, I am interested in issues related to image representation, image enhancement and manipulation, geometric and statistical modeling, physics-based model for vision, image/video labeling and recognition.



La, tout n'est qu'ordre et beauté,
Luxe, calme, et volupté.
---- Charles Baudelaire, 1821-1867

Happiness is not in the mere possession of money;
it lies in the joy of achievement, in the thrill of creative effort.
---- Franklin D. Roosevelt

I have been extremely lucky and privileged to work with extraordinary researchers, and simultaneously to discover beautiful places worldwide ---in particular in China (my adoptive country), in Israel (where I live presently) and in France (my home land). Here is a long Curriculum Vitae, and there a short one.
