I am "Ingénieur de Recherche CNRS - HDR" (IRHC - Research Scientist) and I work in the GETALP Team of the LIG Laboratory. My research is focused on sound and speech processing, multimodal analysis and in context interaction. I am involved in applying these research domains to telemedecine and Ambient Assisted Living.Other activities

The full list of my recent publications are available on the HAL Open Archive web site for the years 2007 and after.
For the precedent publications, and the corresponding abstracts in BibTeX format, please look at this web site including my articles from 2003 to now.
I published some 60 papers on various aspects of the following topics: sound and speech analysis, multimodal analysis, context aware interaction, speech technologies applied to AAL, activity recognition, etc.
The initials RESIDE-HIS and DESDHIS are obtained from the expression DISTRESS SITUATIONS RECOGNITION IN A MEDICAL INTELLIGENT HABITAT.
These projects consist in "Telemonitoring the elderly or persons in convalescence with the aim of detecting serious accidents like falls or faintness at any place in the apartment under survey".
The goals of these projects are to built a telemonitoring system in an habitat equipped with microphones and medical sensors. The originality of our approach consists in replacing the video camera monitoring, not well accepted by the patients, with microphones acquiring the sounds. The sounds are analyzed and not stored in order to maintain the person privacy.
An entire telemonitoring system has been developed. It makes data fusion between medical information and sound information and particularly the sound processing algorithms to detect a distress situation.
In the publication section you can find some informations like abstracts and articles in English (Publications).
A short description of Data Fusion between the Sound Processing System and the Medical Survey System can be found in the publication section (Publications).
A video demonstration is yet available. This demonstration is allowing us to display the inside of the apartment used for experimentation.
Quicktime must be installed to display the virtual visit of the apartment, codec divx 5.03 are available for video playing.
The LIG laboratory is located on Grenoble Campus. My office (room number 330) is located 700 Avenue Centrale in the IMAG building of the Informatic Campus.
