Full professor, Polytech Annecy-Chambéry

Guillaume Ginolhac (S’98,M’01,SM’12) received the Master’s degree of Electrical Engineer, in 1997 and the Ph.D. degree of Signal Processing, in 2001 both from the Grenoble-INP university (France). From 2002 to 2012, he was an associate professor in SATIE Lab and University Paris Nanterre. In 2011, he obtained a Research Directorship Habilitation (HDR) thesis in Signal Processing from the ENS Cachan institute. From 2012, Guillaume Ginolhac is a full professor in LISTIC Lab at University Savoie Mont-Blanc. From July 2018, he is the co-head (with Nicolas Meger) of the « Apprentissage, Fusion et Télédétection » (Learning, Fusion and Remote Sensing) group of LISTIC. His research interests include estimation and detection theory for statistical signal processing and applications to machine learning and array processing.

  • Following the great success of the Finnish-French Workshops in Helsinki 2018, Annecy 2019,Ruedesheim 2021, Cadaquès 2022, dedicated both to methodological aspects and applications challenges in statistical learning, the next one will be organized in France (Porquerolles) in 2023 by A. Ferrari, C. Richard, M. Muma, F. Pascal, E. Ollila and G. Ginolhac. More details in the website.
