About René Garello
Professor Emeritus at IMT Atlantique, Life Fellow IEEE, Past President (2013-2016) IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, President IEEE France Section, and Director of the Scientific Interest Group Bretagne Télédétection (Brittany Remote Sensing).
René's main research interests lie in Remote Sensing, 2D signal processing, statistical and spectral analysis applied to ocean surface features detection and characterisation. For the last two decades, he has worked in the development of signal and image processing tools for the interpretation of satellite signals and the extraction of sea surface features, either natural (wind, waves, currents) or manmade (ships, oil pollution, marine debris). These application fields were supported by several European projects and industrial contracts. He is presently engaged in initiatives on the topic of Marine Debris and Plastic in the oceans, and in several EU projects for IEEE.
