Pierre Marza

PhD Student - Visual Navigation, Computer Vision, Deep Learning, Reinforcement Learning.

I am a first-year PhD student at INSA Lyon, in the LIRIS research lab. I am advised by Laetita Matignon, Olivier Simonin and Christian Wolf. I study Visual Navigation, Embodied AI, Spatial Reasoning. I am interested in learning how to represent/map new photorealistic environments, ground reasoning with language, act efficiently in unknown scenes with few supervision.

Prior to this, I spent some time as an intern at Huawei Noah’s Ark Computer Vision Lab in London, working on Image Enhancement with Sean Moran, Steven McDonagh, Sarah Parisot, Greg Slabaugh, and others. I also interned at Orange Labs in Rennes, studying Visual Question Answering with Corentin Kervadec, Grigory Antipov, Moez Baccouche and Christian Wolf.

I got my Master’s degree from INSA Lyon, with a major in Computer Science. I spent a semester at KTH in Stockholm, studying Deep Learning, Machine Learning and Reinforcement Learning.
