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 array processing and radar/sonar.

  • Following the great success of the Finnish-French Workshops in Helsinki 2018 and Annecy 2019, the third Edition of the Statistical Learning for Signal and Image Processing Workshop, dedicated both to methodological aspects and applications challenges will be organized in Rüdesheim to July 5th – July 7th 2021 by M. Muma, F. Pascal, E. Ollila and G. Ginolhac. Follows the Link for more details.
  • I am PI of the ANR ASTRID MARGARITA (300k€) with LSS & SONDRA (CentraleSupelec), IMS (University of Bordeaux), LEME (University Paris Nanterre
  • A GdR ISIS day will be organized in 2020 December 8th. Its title is “Covariance matrix advances for machine learning” and the program is available here.
