Short Bio

I was born on August 14th, 1982, in Saint-Denis, Reunion Island, France. I received the State Engineering degree and the Ph.D. degree, in the field of audio signal processing, from Télécom ParisTech (formerly known as ENST or Télécom Paris), Paris, France, in 2006 and in 2010, respectively. I am currently a (post-doctoral) research scientist in the Signal Processing Laboratory 5 (LTS5) at the EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland.

My main research interests are statistical models for audio signals, with applications to language learning technologies, musical audio source separation and music information retrieval.

Research Interests

I enjoy investigating mathematical and statistical models for audio, music or speech processing. More specifically, I have been working on using many source/filter models for voice and various instruments along with techniques that decompose the signal into a basis of elementary components, namely the Nonnegative Matrix Factorization (NMF). This research was particularly successful at two tasks, the audio melody extraction and the lead instrument separation from the background music.

I also worked on language learning technologies and "computer-aided pronunciation training" (CAPT) techniques, in collaboration with SpeedLingua. I have also collaborated with the Montreux Jazz Digital Project, at the EPFL. We have further developed audio source separation techniques to produce multiple sound tracks, allowing various remixing applications (Karaoke, spatialisation, ...), as well as Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) to demonstrate the results at the Montreux Jazz Festival.

Personal

I play the oboe and the saxophone, I like playing in chamber music orchestras (woodwind quintets, wind octets, sax quartets... or alone), and I am keen on table tennis and martial arts (Taiji, Nunchuks).
