I am a Ph.D. student at Université Rennes 1, in the IRISA lab. My thesis focuses on the way human look at the screen when they watch movies. Using eye-tracking techniques, I analyze and develop models for visual attention in movies; more specifically, I am particularly interested in understanding the effects of movie directors choices, such as framing, camera movements or edits on gaze patterns. My research interests include eye movements research, saliency and gaze modeling, machine learning in the context of video processing, and automated movie editing.
