He is Associate Professor in the team GETALP at the Laboratoire d'Informatique de Grenoble (LIG), CNRS, Université Grenoble Alpes, France, since 2016. Previously, he was with the Institute of Intelligent Systems and Robotics (ISIR), Université Pierre et Marie Curie, France, from 2006 to 2011, with the Man-Machine-Communication institute (MMK), at the Technische Universität München (TUM), Germany, in 2011, with the DIVA group, at the Université de Fribourg, Switzerland, from 2011 to 2013, with the MISP group at TUM, Germany, from 2013 to 2014, with the Chair of Complex and Intelligent Systems (CIS) at Universität Passau, Germany, from 2014 to 2016. He worked as senior researcher at audEERING GmbH in 2016, and founded ISAC (Intelligent Speech Analysis Consulting) to provide consulting services in the field of intelligent analysis of affective speech.
His research interests concern speech processing and artificial intelligence, with applications on the machine sensing of human behaviours (e.g., emotions, health) from multimodal conversational data (e.g., audio, video and physiological signals). To pursue development of algorithms tailored to computational analysis of human behaviours, he created the Child Pathological Speech Database (CPSD), and the REmote COLlaborative and Affective interactions (RECOLA) database, in close collaboration with clinicians and psychologists, and contributed to the creation of a cross-cultural database of affect (SEWA).
