Louis joined the SOUND Lab in May 2022 as PhD student under the supervision of Debi Vickers, in collaboration with Lorenzo Picinali from the Imperial College of London and Kathleen Faulkner from the Oticon company.
He works on how music can be used to assess distortions in Cochlear Implant processing. Specifically, he develops new testing procedures using music-reengineering to detect monaural and binaural mismatches as well as poor electrode neuron interface in CIs. He did his audiologist’s degree at the University of Lorraine (Nancy, France) and his master’s degree in neuro-prosthetics at the University of Montpellier (Montpellier, France).
His clinical and research experience have led him to develop a huge interest of the brain mechanisms underlaying the hearing loss rehabilitation, and how these cognitive markers can be used to improve the quality of life of hearing impaired.
Besides his passion of science, he spends his free time practising many sports, travelling, and trying to spend time with his friends as much as he can.
