About me

I am a PhD student at Inria Sophia-Antipolis since November 2017 in the TITANE team under the supervision of Dr. Yuliya Tarabalka as part of the EPITOME project . I have a Master of Science ("Diplôme d'Ingénieur" in French) from the French engineering school "École nationale supérieure des Mines de Saint-Etienne" as well as a Master of Science in Mathematical Imaging and Spatial Pattern Analysis.

Research interests

My research focuses on deep learning approaches to structure satellite images on a large scale. We aim to predict a vector image representation of the earth from satellite bitmap images.
