Dr. Frederic Dufaux received the M.Sc. in physics and Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), Lausanne, Switzerland, in 1990 and 1994 respectively.

Frederic has over 20 years of experience in research and project management. Since 2010, he is a CNRS Research Director at Telecom ParisTech. From 2003 to 2010, he was a senior research staff at EPFL. From 2003 to 2009, he was also chief scientist of Emitall SA / Emitall Surveillance SA, a spin-off from EPFL. In 2001 and 2002, he was with Genimedia SA / Genista Corp., Lausanne, Switzerland, as a principal solutions architect. From 1995 till 2001, he was a senior member of research staff at the Cambridge Research Laboratory of Digital Equipment Corp. / Compaq Computer Corp., Cambridge, MA. In 1994 and 1995, he was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Media Laboratory of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA. From 1990 to 1994, he was a research assistant at the Signal Processing Laboratory at EPFL.

Frederic has been involved in the standardization of digital video and imaging technologies for more than 15 years, participating both in the MPEG and JPEG committees. He is currently co-chairman of JPEG 2000 over wireless (JPWL) and co-chairman of JPSearch. He is the recipient of two ISO awards for these contributions.

Since 2010, Frederic is Editor-in-Chief of Signal Processing: Image Communication. He was previously Area Editor for the same journal from 2005 to 2010. He was an invited plenary speaker at IEEE IPTA’2010. He was the General Chair of WIAMIS’2005. He is sitting on the technical program committee of several conferences and was the organizer of several special issues and special sessions. He is a senior member of IEEE.

Frederic is the author or co-author of more than 90 research publications (h-index=20), hold 10 patents in the field of media technologies, and has more than 35 contributions to JPEG and MPEG.

Frederic is an expert for the European Commission, the French National Research Agency, the District Court of Lausanne, the Courts of Luxembourg, and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO).

Frederic’s research interests include image and video coding, distributed video coding, compressed sensing, subjective visual quality assessment, objective quality metrics, video surveillance, privacy protection, multimedia security, video transmission over wireless network, image and video analysis, motion estimation, object segmentation and tracking, and multimedia content search and retrieval.
