I was born in Lille, France. I received the M.Eng. degree in Automatic System Engineering from ENSEM (Nancy, France) in 2005 and the M.Sc. degree in Signal Processing from Université Rennes 1 (Rennes, France) in 2006. I received the Ph.D. degree in Engineering Sciences from the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven (KUL), Belgium in June 2011. From June 2011 to December 2012 I was a research assistant with Prof. Marc Moonen research group at the Electrical Engineering Department (ESAT-SCD) of the KUL. From January 2013 to September 2014 i was a postdoctoral researcher with the Human Language Technology (HLT) group at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler (FBK) in Trento (Italy). From October 2014 to August 2016 I was a postdoctoral researcher with the department of signal and image processing (TSI) at telecom PArisTech in Paris (France) where I am working on speaker diarization, speaker recognition and respresentation learning for audio in the framework of the LASIE project.
I am now an assistant professor at Université de Lorraine doing my research in Laboratoire lorrain de recherche en informatique et ses applications (Loria) with the Multispeech research group and teaching at IUT Charlemagne. My research interests include hearing aids systems, cochlear implants, digital signal processing for audio automatic speech recognition and speaker diarization, and (deep) neural networks and representation learning for acoustic modeling.
