I received my PhD on talking-face biometric authentication from Telecom ParisTech (France) in 2007.

In 2008, I joined Dublin City University (Ireland) to work on video summarization techniques applied to user-generated content.

I have been a permanent CNRS researcher since 2008:

  • at IRIT (Toulouse, France) in the SAMoVA group until 2010
  • at LIMSI (Orsay, France) in the Spoken Language Processing group until 2020
  • back at IRIT (Toulouse, France) until today

My current research interests include deep learning techniques applied to machine listening, with a strong focus on speaker diarization: I am proud to be known as “the guy behind pyannote.

Since 2021, I have also started working as a self-employed scientific advisor and am available for contracting on topics related to my academic research.
