Nicolas Loménie
Research Fellow 2009-2012, Active collaborator since Sept. 2012

Université Paris Descartes (UPD), Associate Professor

Nicolas Loménie is an associate professor at University Paris Descartes. Research fellow at IPAL (joint NUS/I2R/CNRS lab) from 2009 to 2012, his research interests include image analysis, pattern recognition and computer vision. He has worked so far on object recognition issues in VHR satellite images, medical image screening and stereoscopic point set analysis. Since working in and (after 2012) with IPAL, his current research topics include knowledge-driven medical image analysis, in particular for the exploration of huge histopathological images.

Nicolas was full time IPAL researcher from 2008 to 2012 and remains IPAL international Collaborator since.

Topics of interest: 

The current topics of interest are the design of theoretical mathematical morphology filters to act on unorganized point sets. Spatial relations modeling has been a part of this effort so far. Two ongoing projects ANR SPIRIT and MICO are giving the opportunity to go forward in these directions and expand the scope of low-level image analysis interest to more cognitive visionb aspects by working on histopathological images.
