I am an assistant professor (Maître de conférences) in Computer Science. I do research at the SIP team of the LIPADE laboratory and teach at UFR de Mathématiques et Informatique in Université Paris Cité. Before, I was a postdoctoral researcher at Wageningen University & Research in the Laboratory of Geo-information Science and Remote Sensing. I obtained my PhD in image processing from Télécom Paris in 2017. This work was done in collaboration with CNES and was awarded the best PhD award from Fondation Mines-Télécom.

My research interests are in the areas of methodological developments in image processing with applications in particular to remote sensing imagery. This includes high-resolution optical images processing using deep learning techniques and change detection, classification and regularization on multi-temporal series of SAR images using Markov Random Fields models. During my PhD, I was working on the SWOT mission, dedicated to the study of the world’s oceans and its terrestrial surface waters. Since 2019, I also work on the interactions between remote sensing data and natural language. In particular, we introduced the task of Visual Question Answering for Remote Sensing (RSVQA).
