Professor – Centre for Mathematical Morphology, MINES ParisTech – PSL, Research University
Dr. Decencière is senior researcher at MINES ParisTech. His current research interests are focused on image segmentation using mathematical morphology and deep learning, with applications in retinal imaging, histology and astronomy, among others. Bridging the gap between theory and practice is one of his main motivations. Most of his research is financed by industrial partners. He has been for instance in charge since 2008 of a collaboration with L’Oréal, dealing with the characterization of human skin through different imaging modalities (e.g. multiphoton microscopy, whole-slide imaging, structured-light 3D scanner). The resulting software is routinely used by L’Oréal.
