Having joined the University of Huddersfield in September 2018, I am a PhD student on the FluCoMa project (funded by the European Research Council). Under the supervision of Frédéric Dufeu, Owen Green and Pierre Alexandre Tremblay, my research centres around tracking the creative process of techno-fluent composers with the goal of acquiring a better understanding of the contemporary ear. Before this, I studied at Université Rennes 2, France, and completed my master’s research dissertation in 2017 under the supervision of Antoine Bonnet. During this time, I was also a Teaching Assistant in Computer Music. I started my musical life playing tenor recorder at primary school before quickly taking up the trumpet, among other instruments. In my spare time, I will momentary adopt a musical genre in which to compose a few pieces before abandoning them somewhere on my hard-drive. I also likes spending time with my family and friends, reading books and will occasionally play a video game.
