Thèmes de recherche et activités

Neuroinformatics, Neuroimagery, Signal and Image Analysis, Human Vision.

I am involved in human brain studies based on functional neuroimaging. My favorite application is Human Vision. The project COCOA explores the neural correlates of color assimilation. I also study vision deficits especially related to Parkinson's disease progression (see the PD project). A collaboration with Jean-Michel Hupé (CERCO Toulouse) aimed at exploring brain networks implicated in synesthesia.

From the methodological point view, I develop methods for structural (see MR brain scans segmentation projects e.g. LOCUS), or functional (see SELMICAINSI or PyHRF) image processing.

I manage projects in Neuroinformatics to facilitate data and image processing sharing in neuroimaging (see the precursor NeuroLOG) and the current IAM (Information Analysis and Management) project gathering a consortium of teams for designing a versatile facility for data and image processing tool management for in vivo imaging in the context of France Life Imaging FLI. See the recent RT MAPPING on population imaging

I am one of the cofounders of PIXYL, a start-up that develops innovative solutions for medical research.I manage NICOSIA (NeuroImaging, Cognition, Signal and Image Analysis) a translaboratory group which gathers in Grenoble scientists interested in various methodological aspects of neuroimaging data processing.

I am member of the steering committee of IXXI, a research center on complex systems and the scientific board of NeuroCoG, an interdisciplinary research program for a better understanding of brain and mind.

I worked on artificial cognitive systems for patient monitoring, temporal reasoning and models for medical reasoning. The application field was automatic control of therapy delivered to patients hospitalized in intensive care units. A prototype of a computerized protocol for pressure support delivrance NéoGanesh was firstly designed. Several scientific publications demonstrate its therapeutic interest and an industrial version embedded into a commercial respirator in now available SmartCARE/PS (see details).

Curriculum vitae

I was born in France in 1959. I received my engineering diploma from Institut National des Sciences Appliquées de Lyon in applied physics in 1982, my PhD thesis in Computer Science in 1994 from University de Compiègne and my 'Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches' in "Medical Informatics" in 1999 from University J. Fourier de Grenoble. From 1985 to 1988, I worked as research engineer in Télémécanique Electrique research center (Nanterre, 92, Fr) on the modelisation and design of sensors for industrial process control. Since 1988, I am with INSERM. During 10 years (1988-1998), I worked in the INSERM U296 at Henri Mondor Hospital (Créteil, Fr), a Laboratory devoted to Respiratory Physiology, where I developed AI-oriented systems for supervision artificial ventilation. During this period, I was member of the AI lab (LAFORIA) of University Paris 6. In 1998, I joined the functional neuroimaging team (formely U594) at the Grenoble Institut des Neurosciences (U1216 ex-U836).
