I'm a speech scientist and I'm interested in mechanisms of speech perception and production in both the general adult population and people with sensory or motor disabilities.

I'm a permanent lecturer at Nantes University (France) and am a member of the LLING - Laboratoire de Linguistique de Nantes (UMR6310 - Université de Nantes / CNRS.

Some of these experiments are accessible online from this website. They may be accessed from (
