Inria senior research scientist
I was born in 1952 and received the Ph.D. degree in Robotics and Automation from the University of Montpellier, France, in 1981. After spending one year (1981-1982) in a Postdoctoral position at INRS/Bell-Northern Research (Montreal, Canada), I joined INRIA as a Research Scientist firstly in Rennes from 1982 until 1988 and after in Sophia Antipolis. I received in 1991 the “Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches” in Computer Science from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis. My current position is Senior Research Scientist (“Directeur de Recherche”) and my main research interests are autonomous robotics and computer vision. I have currently more of 140 publications in the top journals and conferences of the domain. I was at the head of the ARobAS group from 2008 to 2011 and, I lead the Sophia Antipolis part of the project team Lagadic bilocalized in Rennes and Sophia-Antipolis until december 2017
I am involved in several national and international projects, some in direct connection with French industrial partners.
I have served in the programme committee of several major conferences in computer vision and robotics: IEEE ICRA (06-12) , IEEE IROS (97-99, 07-12), IJCAI (95), AFCET/RFIA (98, 04-12), ECCV (91), Omnivis (08-12), JNRR (99-13)
I have been Associate Editor of the IEEE Trans. on Robotics and Automation and of the IEEE Trans. on Robotics from 2004 until 2010.
I am member of the executive board and co-leader of the workgroup “Ground Robotics” for the national robotics network GDR-CNRS “Robotique”.
