CV: French version [pdf]

Hello and welcome on my website!

Since september 2016, I am Full Professor of Statistics and Data Science at University of Caen, department of Mathematics and Computer Science and the Lab of Mathematics Nicolas Oresme (LMNO) UMR CNRS 6139. From 2011 to 2015, I've been Associate Professor (maître de conférences) at University of Toulon and the Information Sciences and Systems Lab. (LSIS) UMR CNRS 7296. In 2015-2016 I was awarded a CNRS research leave at the Lab of Mathematics Paul Painlevé, UMR CNRS 8524 in Lille. I defended my Accreditation to Supervise Research/Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches (available here) in applied mathematics and computer science at Toulon University in December 2015. I defended my Ph.D. thesis in the same area at Compiègne University of Technology in December 2010, and I received my Master degree in Signals Systems Images and Robotics in June 2007 from PARIS 6 (Pierre & Marie Curie) University. My primary research interests include statistical modeling and inference, high-dimensional and functional data analysis, machine learning, and their applications to signal and image processing and pattern recognition.
