Christel-Loic Tisse

Roberto Mariani

Chris is a Senior Research Fellow at the Interactive and Digital Media Institute (IDMI) at National University of Singapore (NUS). He received his PhD in Microelectronics from the Laboratory of Computer Science, Robotics and Microelectronics (LIRMM) at the University of Montpellier in 2003 while working as a research scientist in embedded imaging and multimodal biometric systems at STMicroelectronics. The topic of his PhD thesis was “Person identity verification using iris recognition algorithms”. He then joined the Australian Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney where he led the ‘Small Flyer’ project until 2007. His work was focused on visually guided Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) and more particularly on the design and development of innovative computational camera systems and algorithms for wide-angle imaging and depth perception. In September 2007, Chris accepted a business opportunity with DxO Labs, a fast-growing start-up developing Extended Depth-of-Field (EDoF) technologies for camera phone applications, where he was appointed Deputy Chief Scientist and Research Director of the B2B division. Since October 2008, Chris lives in Singapore and provides consulting in the areas of pupil function engineering and co-design of hybrid optical-digital imaging systems. He also spent one year working as a Senior Research Fellow at Singapore’s Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), conducting research on solid-state refocusing (i.e. digital refocusing from a single photo).


His current research interests at NUS include the exploration of semiotic models for (3D) visual inference.
