I am an independent researcher, software developer and musician based in Paris. With a background in machine learning and signal processing, my research aims at developing innovative tools for music and sound creation, analysis and search.

After earning a PhD from the Technical University of Berlin, I worked as a researcher at IRCAM and Audionamix, on topics such as source separation, automatic music analysis, sound classification, content-based search and sound synthesis. My current main activity concerns the exploration of machine learning techniques for new methods of sound analysis/synthesis aimed at musical creation.

I also work as a research and development consultant for companies, institutions and composers, helping them to design and evaluate new methods for their sound or music processing needs.

On the musical side, I am a classically-trained pianist, later self-taught in improvisation. I play with two bands: Edelweiss Quartet, a classical/jazz combo, and The Overlap, an electronic/rock trio.
