I am an assistant professor at CNAM (Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers) since Sept. 2014.
My research take place in the ILJ team (Interactivity to Play and Read) of the Computer Science laboratory CEDRIC. I'm interested in sonic interaction design, especially using spatial audio in immersive applications. My work focus on the use of audio in the context of video gaming either to develop more immersive games or to make them accessible (blind and visual impaired players). I also employ the auditory modality to developp new sensory rehabilitation approaches and therapeutical games (autism/unilateral spatial neglect).
As a teacher, I am responsible of the national M.Eng in Interactive Digital Media by apprenticeship (Angouleme) and teach Computer Sciences (Digital Media, HCI, Audio-visual Perception and Signal Processing) in ENJMIN (National School of Video Games and Interactive Media).
Before joining the CNAM, I spent one year as a post-doc researcher at LIPADE (Computer Science Laboratory of Paris Descartes). I defended my Ph.D. from Paris Sud XI University working at LIMSI-CNRS. During my Ph.D., I spent 6 months as a doctoral fellow in the Multimodal Interaction Laboratory ( McGill University / CIRMMT) in Montreal, QC, Canada. After a Master of Science on audiovisual techniques for music and cinema production at ISB (Image&Sound of Brest, University of Bretagne Occidentale) in 2007, I graduated with honors from the master program of Acoustics, Digital Signal Processing and Computer Sciences applied to Music (ATIAM) of IRCAM in September 2008.
