I am a second year PhD student at the Willow team, INRIA/ENS, working under the supervision of Josef Sivic and Relja Arandjelović. Previously, I got a Master's degree in Mathematics/Vision/Machine learning from École Normale Supérieure de Cachan. My research focuses in developing trainable methods for solving the image alignment problem in difficult cases presenting strong appearance variations (including category-level matching and variations in depiction style), or changes in the scene due to the passage of time.
