Research interests

For the past several years, my focus has been on studies related to the analysis of fluid flows from image sequences. Toward this end, my interests concern principally the conception of fluid motion estimators, the study of visual tracking procedures or the elaboration of image-based data assimilation schemes allowing to couple numerical models and images. Recently, I explored methodological frameworks for the incorporation of uncertainties in dynamical models. My research works are at the crossing of several scientific disciplines such as Computer Vision, Applied Mathematics, Geophysics and Fluid Mechanics.
