Hi! I am a researcher at IGN, the French National Geographical Institute, in the machine learning department STRUDEL. The focus of my research is to develop new optimization and learning methods to exploit the structure of remote sensing data (spectral, spatial, temporal, multi-modal) for improved precision and speed.

During my PhD at INRIA I studied learning and optimization structured by large graphs (total variation, graphical models, etc). I now work on machine learning and computer vision applied on remote sensing challenges such as  3D point clouds analysis and satellite superspectral time-series. I have also developed an interest for structured deep models, such as graph convolutions and attention-based encoders.

I am the main investigator of the ReADy3D ANR project on Real-time Analtsis of Dynamic 3D data.

See my academic_CV for more details (updated in April 2021).

NEW: Our paper on scalable surface deep reconstruction method, with Raphael Sulzer, Renaud Marlet, and Bruno Vallet has been accepted at SGP2021. Preprint coming very soon.

NEW: Our ISPRS Special Issue « Muti-modal learning in photogrammetry and remote sensing« , co-edited with Michael Ying Yang, Devis Tuia and Charles Toth is online. Some very interesting work about a hot topic.

NEW: Our CVPR Workshop EarthVision have been accepted. Great line-up of speakers, contests, and as always a must for meeting remote-sensing researchers interested in the latest advances in computer vision.

NEW: Our paper presenting Torch-points3D havs been accepted as an oral at 3DV 2020. Congrats to the awesome dev team for their impressive work.

NEW: Our newest paper on satellite time series with Vivien Sainte-Fare Garnot has been acccepted at CVPR 2020 for an oral! Check the paper and the code. Comes with a new benchmark too.
