I am a research scientist heading the machine learning group at the Idiap Research Institute in Switzerland. My work is at the intersection of computer vision, natural language processing, and machine learning.
I also hold an adjunct position with the Australian Institute for Machine Learning of the University of Adelaide. Previously, I have been affiliated with Carnegie Mellon University (USA), the University of Bath (UK), and the Intelligent and Interative Systems lab of the University of Innsbruck (Austria). I am originally from Belgium, where I received a PhD in computer science (University of Liège, 2013) with Justus Piater.

When I'm not working, I love to explore the outdoors and practice endurance sports.
I dabble in ultramarathon running, cycling, and triathlon races as an amateur. I've also been on a few exciting adventures of my own, like cycling across the United States (twice), paddling across Scotland, and cycling across Australia (a few times).
