Laurent Amsaleg received his PhD from the University of Paris 6. He is now a senior researcher at CNRS. He leads the Linkmedia research team at the IRISA-INRIA lab in Rennes, France. His research interests include high dimensional indexing at scale and multimedia analytics, as well as the many facets of the security issues in relation with the processing of extremely large collections of multimedia material. Topics dealing with privacy and adversarial machine learning are therefore central to his work.

In his early days, he worked at INRIA with Patrick Valduriez where his research interests were including relational and object-oriented databases, garbage collection, object clustering, operating systems, micro-kernels and single-level stores. He also worked with Michael Franklin in the Database group of the University of Maryland (MD, USA), designing flexible database query execution strategies.
