Short Bio

I obtained my Engineering Degree in 2000 from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (Paris, France) which is known nowadays as Telecom ParisTech. From 2000 to 2001 I was a Research Engineer with the Panasonic Speech Technology Laboratory (Santa Barbara, California) working on speech and speaker recognition. I subsequently joined the Multimedia Communications Department of the Institut Eurecom where I did a Ph.D. on face recognition in collaboration with France Telecom Research, now Orange Labs. I obtained my Ph.D. degree in 2004 from the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (Lausanne, Switzerland). In 2005, I joined the Xerox Research Center Europe as a Research Scientist. In 2010 I was appointed Senior Scientist and in 2012, I was appointed Principal Scientist and manager of the Computer Vision group.
