I graduated from Grenoble INP and University Grenoble 1 where I followed a double curriculum (Signal processing engineer / Master’s degree in Cognitive Science). After working as a research engineer at the Lyon Neuroscience Research Center (CRNL) for one year, I prepared a thesis in the Laboratory on Language, Brain and Cognition (L2C2, Lyon). During that three years period, I developed and applied a new statistical method for revealing the acoustic cues used by the listeners during speech in noise comprehension. Then I was recruited as a post-doctoral researcher at the Ecole Normale Superieure (Paris) in 2016, where I am currently investigating the perception of amplitude and frequency modulations by the auditory system in humans.
I have a strong interest in the auditory perception of speech and non-speech sounds, and in the development of statistical and signal processing techniques for research purposes. I am currently conducting a research program exploring the auditory perception of amplitude- and frequency-modulations cues for humans, and another program exploring phoneme categorization strategies in normal-hearing and impaired-hearing people. For those purposes, I developed signal-processing tools based on the concept of modulation spectrum, auditory models of temporal-modulation processing and psychophysical methods such as the Auditory Classification Image.
I have taught C++ programming, statistics and speech processing as a teacher assistant in charge of practicals in Polytech Lyon.
