I am a research associate in the Binaural Hearing and Speech Lab working on auditory mechanisms associated with speech perception for bilateral cochlear implants users. I am interested in understanding how bilateral cochlear implants users can take advantage of having two implants and developing strategies to improve speech perception, localization while reducing listening effort in complex environments involving noise or several talkers.

I obtained an MSc in audio engineering at Université de Bretagne Occidentale (Brest, France) in 2011 and a PhD in psychoacoustics at ENTPE, Université de Lyon (France) in 2015. I mainly worked on binaural mechanisms associated with speech perception for normal hearing people. Then I completed a 10-month post-doctoral training working on sound externalization over headphones.
