Current State

Associate Professor on Signal and Image Processing

Head of the team: Remote Sensing for Smart Agriculture


I received the HDR degree from the Sfax University, Tunisia, in 2014. In 2007, I obtained the Ph.D. degree in physics from the Paris-Sud University, France. I got the engineering and M.S. degrees in telecoms from Sup'Com, Tunisia, in 2003 and 2004. I was a post doc scientist at LSCE, France and Tartu Observatory, Estonia, in 2008 and 2009, respectively. I am currently  a senior researcher of remote sensing at Digital Research Centre of Sfax, Tunisia, particularly I am the head of the team Remote Sensing for Smart Agriculture. I am interesting to radiative transfer modeling within vegetation cover: forward and inverse models.
