Lucien Maman

My name is Lucien Maman, I am a french PhD student at Telecom Paris. I have an Engineering degree from ESTIA (Biarritz, France) and a Master degree in Software Engineering for Technical Computing from Cranfield University (Cranfield, UK). After graduating, I worked for nearly 2 years in a London based startup named Grabyo as a Video Engineer where I was, among other tasks, responsible of the streaming platform on the cloud. I am now focused on my thesis on the  automated detection of the cohesion in small groups interaction.  My research interests mostly centre on affective computing and machine learning.
