⭔ Welcome

I am a CNRS Researcher in computer music interested in understanding, analyzing and modelling the creative processes used by musicians in their compositions, improvisations and stage performances, as well as creating new computer tools for musician-machine interactions, using AI, machine learning and ethnography.
I work at UMR 9189 – CRIStAL in the Algomus Team in Lille, France.
I also work with Bob Sturm in the scope of his ERC project MUSAIC and with Louis Bigo in the scope of his ANR project TABASCO.

Before that, I did my PhD at Inria (Multispeech) and Ircam (Musical representation) and then worked as a postdoctoral researcher at Ircam, EPFL (DCML), University of Lille (Algomus), and KTH (MUSAiC).
