Short bio : 

Thibaud Senechal is a PhD student at the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR) , and a temporary assistant professor at Pierre and Marie Curie University (UPMC Paris 6) , Paris, France. He holds an engineering degree from the Ecole Normale Supérieure (ENS) Cachan engineering school and a MSc in computer science from the University of Paris-Est. His main areas of research are affective computing, pattern recognition, computer vision and machine learning.



Fields research :


  • Affective computing

- Facial expression description. Where resides useful information to recognize an emotion ?

- Transcription of Action Unit scores (AUs, describing any anatomically possible facial expression) into emotion terms.


  • Kernels learning

- AUs detection with new kernels (HDI kernel) adapted to histogram-based facial coding.

- Facial points tracking using Multi-Kernels Learning (MKL) to fuse online and offline information.

- Muti-Kernels Learning (MKL) to fuse different feature types (AAM, LGBP).

*** Best entry in the first international challenge of Action Units detection (FERA 2011) ***. Official results here.

  • Multilinear Analysis

- Separation of expression and identity factors in facial images. A variation of the Multilinear Principal Component Analysis is proposed and used.

- Tensor representation data

  •  Neural networks

- Facial feature points detection using a cascade of neural networks.



PhD :


Subject: Facial expression analysis.

Advisor: Lionel Prevost.
