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.
