I am a researcher (chargé de recherche, permanent position) in the Inria LEAR team.
I was previously a postdoctoral fellow in the Inria WILLOW team at the Department of Computer Science, École Normale Supérieure (ENS), where I worked with Ivan Laptev, Jean Ponce, and Josef Sivic. I completed my Ph.D. in 2010, under the supervision of Philip Torr. I am also an associate member of the Visual Geometry Group, University of Oxford and the WILLOW team at ENS.
