Biography

After her studies, Lama Séoud completed a postdoct internship in a private company, Dianos Inc., which she joined afterwards as a researcher. She has worked on computer-aided diagnosis of retinal pathologies. In 2016, she joined the computer vision and graphic’s research team at the National Research Council (NRC) Canada in Ottawa. She has worked for 3 years on the integration of deep learning to the acquisition and analysis of 3D data, particularly human motion data. She is currently assistant professor at Polytechnique Montréal.
