About Me

Welcome to my website 🙂.

I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Orleans, France. I completed my engineering degree ( Ingénieur d'état ) at the National Institute of Telecommunication and ICT in Oran, Algeria. ( ex. INTTIC, now ENTTIC).

I am interested in deep learning and neural networks, self-supervised learning, and domain adaptation in relation to computer vision. My thesis project aims to the modeling and understanding of human visual attention mechanisms in regard to painting images and cultural
