As an image processing PhD, my work consists in extracting information from images. From acquisition to analysis, visual or numerical, image processing provides a diversified toolbox for any analysis of data contained in 2D and/or 3D images. Thanks to various professional experiences, I worked in distinct applications and different laboratories and firms, as detailed below.

  • IFP Energies nouvelles:

IFP Energies nouvelles, Rond-point de l'échangeur de Solaize, BP3, F-69360 Solaize, France

IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN) is a major research and training player in the fields of energy, transport and the environment. From research to industry, technological innovation is central to all its activities. Its areas of expertise include:

  • sustainable mobility,
  • renewable energies,
  • responsible oil and gas,
  • climate and environment.

  • Hubert Curien Laboratory:

Université de Lyon, Université Jean Monnet de Saint-Etienne, CNRS UMR 5516, Laboratoire Hubert Curien, F-42000 Saint-Etienne, France
Laboratoire Hubert Curien, UMR CNRS 5516, Bâtiment F 18 Rue du Professeur Benoît Lauras, 42000 Saint-Etienne, France

The Hubert Curien Laboratory is a joint research unit (UMR 5516) of the Jean Monnet University, Saint-Etienne, the National Research Centre "CNRS" and the Insitut d'Optique Graduate School. Their research activities are organized according to two scientific departments:

  • Optics, photonics and microwave,
  • Computer science, telecom and image.

  • Psychiatry and Neurophotonics Research Laboratory (PNRL, CERVO):

Centre de recherche CERVO, Université Laval, 2601 chemin de la Canardière, Québec, QC G1J 2G3, Canada

Psychiarty and Neurophotonics Research Laboratory, Office F-4455, 2601, chemin de la Canardière, Québec (Québec) G1J 2G3 

The main goal of their transdisciplinary research program is the identification of high-risk biomarkers related to the neurodevelopment of major psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, bipolar disorders and major depression disorder. These biomarkers would enable early identification of at-risk children and the consideration of primary prevention strategies for such major neurodevelopmental psychiatric disorders.
