Team position : advisor, Synthesis Strand

Background : promoted to associate professor (“hors classe”) in 2018. He is working in Computer Science at the University of Montpellier and Nîmes, France, based in the LIRMM laboratory. I am an international expert in steganography and more generally in image and video processing which he applies to a wide range of domains such as multimedia security (steganography, digital forensics, watermarking, video & image compression), segmentation, tracking in videos, and life & environmental sciences. My collaborators in the security are academics and government agencies. My collaborators in the environment include The Marine Biodiversity Exploitation and Conservation Laboratory (MARBEC), Agricultural Research for Development (CIRAD), Astrophysics and Cosmology laboratory (Centre de physique des particules de Marseille), Montpellier Hydro Sciences Lab, and Berger-Levrault.

Key disciplines and skillsets : Image and video processing, Deep Learning, Data-Mining.

Expectation : I wish (and our institutes too) for more transdisciplinarity, and I am interested in the projects of society (including ecology).
