Welcome to my page! I am a Full Professor at the University of Rouen Normandy (URN).

Research: I am with the LITIS lab, and my research work deals with medical image  analysis with machine learning.

Teaching: I teach courses at both the undergraduate and the graduate level on topics such as digital signal and image processing, statistics, etc. Nothing about teaching on this website. Everything is in our moodle: https://universitice.univ-rouen.fr/ (for URN students only).
