I am assistant professor at François Rabelais university, IUT and a member of the RFAI team of the LI lab, in Tours.
I received a PhD in Computer Science (2009) from Nancy 2 University.
The subject of my PhD thesis was about modeling, retrieval, classification and automatic annotation of images,
by combining visual and semantic information with probabilistic graphical models.
This thesis was supervised by Pr. Salvatore Tabbone.
After my PhD, I was awarded a JSPS Postdoctoral Fellowship and spent 6 months in the Intelligent Media Processing group of Osaka Prefecture University, Japan. During my postoctoral position, I worked on character recognition under the supervision of Pr. Koichi Kise.
