I obtained the Master’s degree from the Université Lyon 1, France, in 2005, the PhD degree in computer science from the Université Lyon 2 in 2008 and the HDR (habilitation) in computer science from Université Clermont Auvergne in 2018. I am associate professor at the Université Clermont Auvergne and was the director of the «Licence Professionnelle Image et Son» between 2010 and 2015.
I give courses of signal and image processing, 3-D image rendering (for virtual reality or web applications), project management and object/event based programming in the IUT of Le Puy en Velay.
I am also member of the Institut Pascal, UMR 6602 UCA/SIGMA/CNRS / research team CaVITI, and my main research topics are biomedical image analysis, discrete geometry and topology, irregular spatial structures and computer vision.
