My research is focused on hearing, with a special interest in time: the temporal structure of sound and sound scenes, and the neural bases of their perception. More details on my official web page.
A list of publications (with links to full text whenever possible).
This is where I teach auditory perception: master de sciences cognitives, master Atiam, master IMA (until 2020).
As "professeur associé" to the DEC, I also teach Good research practices and provide a general Introduction to cognitive science for normaliens.
I am keen to see applications of my work so I did some consulting work for Advanced Bionics. Now I have collaborative projects with the Groupement Entendre and UrgoTech, and I participate in the Tremplin Carnot Cognition.
I co-organised an edition of the International Symposium on Hearing, ISH2003. The book that came out of it, 'Auditory Signal Processing: Physiology, Psychoacoustics and Models', is available from Springer, Amazon or even google books.
My PhD thesis was about roughness perception and musical consonance/dissonance.
A demo of an auditory illusion illustrating context effects in audition.
And more demos, with our take on the Laurel/Yanny controversy.
