Short bio:

Dr Rémi MEGRET received his MSc in Computer Science from ENS Lyon in 2000 and his PhD degree in Computer Science from INSA Lyon, France, in 2003. In 2004, he joined the ENSEIRB-MATMECA at Bordeaux Institute of Technology and the Signal and Image Processing Research Group at IMS Laboratory, UMR 5218, working as Associate Professor. He was from 2014 to 2016 with the Mathematical Sciences Department of the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez (UPRM). He joined the Computer Science department of the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras (UPRRP) in 2016.

His topics of interest are within the fields of Computer Science, Signal and Image Processing and Mathematical modeling. His research activities concern computer vision, image and video processing, modeling and inference of geometry and motion. Most recent works involve the usage of vision for location and motion estimation and classification using embedded cameras. Applications include remote sensing using UAVs and using wearable cameras an an aid for activity analysis in the context of dementia monitoring (IMMED and Dem@Care projects). Recent projects focus on the application of Computer Vision to Multidisciplinary Sciences. A collaboration with biologists UPR-RP aims at developing automatic analysis of individual bee behavior at large scale using video cameras. A collaboration with Brookhaven National Laboratory aims at developing new tools for the automatic analysis of Environmental Transmission Electron Microscopy (ETEM) image sequences.
