Short biography

After an initial career in English as a second language teaching, I decided to change paths slightly and now I teach computers rather than humans to speak. After completing a master’s in natural language processing at the Université de Franche-Comté, I began a PhD in neural incremental speech synthesis at the Université Grenoble Alpes. My research interests include representation learning, prosody modeling and discourse analysis.

Thesis subject
