Robin Strudel

I am a fourth year PhD student at INRIA and DI ENS, in the Willow team, where I work on computer vision and robotics with Ivan Laptev and Cordelia Schmid. I am currently interning at DeepMind and I will be graduating in Fall 2022.

Before my PhD, I graduated from ENS Paris-Saclay with a Masters degree in mathematics, machine learning and computer vision (MVA) and from ENS Lyon with a Masters degree in probability. I was a visiting student researcher in the UC Berkeley Department of Statistics for a year under the supervision of Steven N. Evans and an intern in the Oxford Department of Statistics with Julien Berestycki.

Research

I am interested in computer vision, machine learning and robotics. I have been working on scene understanding and learning to perform visually guided manipulation tasks with a robot. My research relates to image segmentation, imitation learning, reinforcement learning and sim-to-real transfer.

Segmentation
