I am a full professor at University of Bordeaux, France. I also supervize a research group in Computer Vision for Augmented Reality at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision, TU Graz. Before that, I was a full professor at the Institute for Computer Graphics and Vision, Graz University of Technology, from February 2014 to December 2016. I was a founding member of the Computer Vision Laboratory (CVLab), EPFL. I often serve as an area chair for the major computer vision conferences (CVPR, ICCV, ECCV). I am an associate editor for PAMI, IJCV, and CVIU. I am a senior member of the Institut Universitaire de France.

My research is at the interface between Machine Learning and 3D Computer Vision, with application to 3D hand pose estimation, feature point detection and description, and 3D object or camera registration from images. In particular, I introduced with colleagues methods such as Ferns, BRIEF, LINE-MOD, and DeepPrior for feature point matching and 3D object recognition.
