Brief Vitae

Graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, University of Timisoara, Rumania (1991), I obtained the Master Degree of Robotics and Vision at the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis (1992).

My PhD in Computer Vision I prepared under the supervision of Olivier Faugeras at l'INRIA Sophia Antipolis, within the group Robotvis (defended the 3rd April 1996).

I spent one year and half as a postdoctoral associates within the group Movi, INRIA Rhône-Alpes , that I continue actually within the group Vista at IRISA Rennes.

Research Topics

My research interests include the uncalibrated computer vision, self-calibration, motion analyses, geometric and algebraic study of image sequences obtained by one or more cameras.

My PhD thesis studies the possibility of a projective representation of the three-dimensional environment using a pair of views obtained with uncalibrated cameras. During my stay at Inria Rhône-Alpes, I was interested in self-calibration and Euclidean reconstruction using image sequences and motions of a stereo rig. Actually, my research works concern the motion analyses in video sequences.
