PhD candidate - Music Composer - Sound Engineer

About me


I am a PhD candidate at Paris-Saclay University, CNRS, LISN, VENISE team, working around Extended Reality, Spatial Audio, Autism, and Human-Computer Interaction.

In 2017, I graduated from the Advanced Music Production Program (FSMS) at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris (CNSMDP), after having developed solid skills in sound engineering, music, and science for audio. In particular, I worked on spatialized music production during my Master’s internship at Radio France Quality and Innovation Department. After that, I worked as a 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 especially into Audio Augmented Reality during my second Master’s intership at BBC R&D. In 2019, started my PhD entitled “Exploring Multisensory Extended Reality Approaches for Autistic Children: Improve Well-Being and Assess Auditory Perception”.

I also pursue creative endeavours. In particular, I have been working on several sound creations (e.g., exhibition) and film-scoring projects (e.g., short movies), with different actors of the field (Cité des Sciences, France Culture) and directors.

Parallel to these research and creative activities, I am teaching some classes, related to research methodology at FSMS (2021-), algorythms and human-computer interaction at IUT Orsay (2019-2021), and Virtual Reality at Polytech (2022-2023).
