I was trained in Psychology at Univ Lyon II. I then obtained a Master degree in Cognitive Sciences and a Ph.D. in Experimental Psychology in the same university. I have worked at the Applied Psychology Unit of the Medical Research Council (MRC, Cambridge, UK) as a post-doctoral scientist, and at the Institute of Hearing Research of the MRC (Glasgow, UK) as a junior scientist. I was recruited at the Univ Paris Descartes as lecturer (1997) and then full professor (2001), before taking a position of full professor in Experimental Psychology at the Ecole normale superieure (Paris) in 2011. I am a fellow of the Acoustical Society of America and a former (junior) member of IUF (2001). My research focuses on temporal processing by the normal and impaired human auditory system, the perception of speech and natural soundscapes by normal-hearing and hearing-impaired people.
