Short biosketch

I received the Ms.C. degree in Signal Processing and Telecommunications from Vienna University of Technology (Vienna, Austria) in 2005.
I received the Ph.D. degree in Signal Processing and Physics from Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon (Lyon, France) in 2008.

From November 2008 to December 2011, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate with the Department of Mathematics and with the Geomathematical Imaging Group at Purdue University (West Lafayette, Indiana).
From September to December 2010, I was a research member of the MSRI research seminar "Inverse Problems and Applications" at MSRI (Berkeley, California).

Since 2012, I am a CNRS researcher with the IRIT laboratory at University of Toulouse. His research is conducted within the Computational Imaging and Vision research group.

Major distinctions

I received the Early Career Award of the European Association for Signal Processing (EURASIP) for my work on Bayesian Methods for Multifractal Analysis in 2017.

Since 2016, I am serving as an Associate Editor for Signal Processing (Elsevier).

Since 2019, I am a Senior Member of IEEE.
