Image science & computer vision


Group leader: Thierry Fournel


Digital image is everywhere in our so-called information society: web, mobile devices, photography, video, medical or biological imaging, satellite imaging.

Our research concerns the whole image processing chain from imaging and low level processing to image analysis and understanding.


Principal research directions

  1. Macroscopic modeling of images of functional surfaces
  2. Optical design and reconstruction
  3. Image analysis and understanding
