PhD (Universite de Paris VI)
- Completed in parallel a 5-year Computer Science Engineering at ENSEIRB and a 5-year degree in pure math at University Pierre et Marie Curie
- Did a PhD in Discrete Math under the supervision of Claude Berge on graph optimization problems
- Joined QUT mid-1995 as an associate lecturer to work on pattern recognition and neurocomputing.
- Research interests shifted toward machine learning, computer vision and robotics

My current research main focus is on an international project on “Dugong Detector to Monitor Seagrass Health” https://amru.org.au/our-research/dugong-detector/
My early work on neural networks and AI for strategic games did not involve industry partners but in the last few years my projects have become more applied:
- I have been involved through the Rail CRC in the development of vision based techniques to detect near-miss incidents at railroad crossings.
- With colleagues from CARRS-Q, I have applied machine learning techniques to driver safety problems.
- I have developed deep learning based software to monitor dugong populations.
- I am working on projects for Mining3.
