Research

I am currently a PostDoctoral Fellow at McGill University, in the Department of Physiology, under the supervision of Professor Kathleen Cullen and in collaboration with Dr Maurice Chacron. I work on vestibular information processing using in vivo recordings in the vestibular nuclei of primates and information theoretic tools. I am interested in the sensory and cognitive processes conveying the perception of the 3D spatial environment and its representation. Since my PhD, I work on the problem of 3D perception from texture in the general context of natural scenes analysis using computational model and psychophysical experiments. In parallel I also work on facial information processing for Human-Machine interaction problems.
