PhD candidate - Music Composer - Sound Engineer

About me


I am passionate about artistic creation, human factors, and technology. I am today engaged in a PhD at LIMSI-CNRS in the VENISE team. I am also a film-scoring composer, audio engineer and music consultant.

I first studied Maths and Physics in Classes préparatoires at Lycee Janson de Sailly in Paris (2011/2013). I then engaged in the Advanced Music Production Master Program (FSMS) at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP). I developed solid skills in sound engineering, music and science for audio, and graduated in 2017. I notably worked on spatialized music production during my Master’s internship at Radio France Quality and Innovation Department. After that, I worked as music consultant for Toulouse Capitole National Orchestra and as an audio engineer on several projects. I then engaged in the Media and Arts Technology Master Programme (MAT) at Queen Mary University of London (2018/2019). There, I digged more into computer sciences and Audio Augmented Reality during my second Master’s intership at BBC R&D. Today, my work lies between 3D Audio, Computer-Human Interaction, Mixed Reality, Autism.

On the music creation side, I have been working on several film-scoring projects and sound creations as a composer (teaser, short movies), with different actors of the field (Forum des Images, France Culture) and directors.
