Short Biography
In 1990, Florence Cloppet obtained her bachelor in Neurosciences (Aix-Marseille University), and her Master in Computer Science for Life Sciences in 1992 (René Descartes University). Then she obtained her PhD from the René Descartes University (Paris V – France) in 1996 with a dissertation in Computer Science entitled “Image Analysis of cell cultures obtained by optical microscopy”. She has always been particularly involved in multidisciplinary research projects, either in Biomedical Imaging or more recently also in Document Imaging. In 2016, she obtained the HDR (Paris Descartes University), with a synthesis on all the research conducted since the PhD, with the use of Information/Knowledge in Analysis and Interpretation of the images. The main axis that is currently under investigation is the creation of an environment dedicated to the exploitation of large masses of acquired images (Big Data) for the development of new biomarkers in bioimaging. Florence Cloppet has also been involved in multidisciplinary teaching (Master in Computer Science applicate to Life Sciences (until 2010), Master Biomedical Engineering (since 2010).
