About me


I am doing a post-doc at Politecnico di Milano, i3lab, working on a multisensory music and paint application intending to promote collaboration between autistic children with moderate to severe learning disabilities and complex needs.

This work connects to my PhD thesis, completed in January 2023 at Paris-Saclay University, CNRS, LISN, VENISE team, and entitled “Exploring Multisensory Extended Reality Approaches for Autistic Children: Improve Well-Being and Assess Auditory Perception”.

Before that, I did two masters. First, I graduated in 2017 from the Advanced Music Production Program (FSMS) at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), where I have developed skills in sound engineering, music, science for audio, as well as spatialized music production during an internship at Radio France Quality and Innovation Department. Second, I completed the Media and Arts Technology Master Programme (MAT) at Queen Mary University of London in 2020, focusing on computer sciences, as well as Audio Augmented Reality during an intership at BBC R&D.

I also pursue creative activities. As a sound artist I have been working on several sound creations (e.g., 2022-2023 Cancer exhibition at Cité des Sciences, various short films). As a music consultant, I particularly worked with Toulouse Capitole National Orchestra in 2018.

Parallel to these activities, I teached research classes at FSMS and Louis Lumière master programs (2021-2023), algorithmics and human-computer interaction at BUT Orsay (2019-2021), and Virtual Reality at Polytech (2022-2023).
