Position: Profesor
Morel, Jean-Michel

Jean-Michel Morel leads a team of 20 researchers and coordinates 20 more on the mathematical analysis of image processing and the invention of new algorithms. This team collaborates with French Space Agency for the design of Earth observation satellites (SPOT5, Pleiades, OTOS).  The image denoising algorithms co-invented by JMM are implemented in more than 300 million cameraphones by DxO Labs, a world leader in software and hardware for cameras. In 2011 JMM founded Image Processing on Line (, the first journal publishing reproducible algorithms in online executable articles. IPOL has collaborators in 15 universities and its public archives contain 120000 online experiments. JMM’s recent awards: 2010 Clay Scholar in Residence, European Research Council advanced grant 2010, Grand Prix INRIA – French Academy of Science 2013.

Jean-Michel Morel has been in turn a PhD student at Université Paris IV, a postdoc at SISSA (Trieste, Italy), a teaching assistant at Université de Marseille Luminy, an assistant professor at Université Paris Dauphine, and is currently a professor at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Cachan. He has also been for 20 years a permanent visiting professor at Universitat Illes Balears (where he leads a six researchers team), and a recurrent invited professor at University of California at Los Angeles.
