Welcome to my website ! I am a researcher in computer music, interested in code literacy, music computing and open science.

Computer Music

My research focuses on computer music, i.e. the music that is written with programming languages. This music involves a particular medium, a digital one, which appears to the musicologist as a bundle of lines of code. The starting point of my research work proceeds from the interactions between the medium and the musicologist, in another word how to get the knowledge in the medium to conduct a musical analysis. Jean-Claude Risset is a prominent figure in my work. Using the term 'exhaustive score', he emphasizes the richness of digital medium in musical analysis. Nevertheless, he stated in 2000s that musicology was not yet prepared to investigate this medium. My research aims to highlight this mediums so they can be used for analyses purposes.

Open Science

I work in this field since 2015. I started at Université Paris-Est and currently (2021) at Université de Paris ( mainly the merge of univ. Paris Descartes and Paris Diderot). My work is to developp open science within the university. I am a project manager for a new publishing platform. In open science I am interested in politics, technology, research evaluation, and the ecosystem of scientific knowledge : publications, data and software.
