JJ Aucouturier
Principal Investigator

JJ is a permanent researcher in CNRS/IRCAM, and the PI of ERC StG project CREAM (2014-2019). He was trained in computer science (SONY Computer Science Laboratory, Paris), and held several postdoctoral positions in cognitive neuroscience in University of Tokyo and RIKEN Brain Science Institute (Japan) and University of Burgundy in Dijon, France.

Laura Rachman
Postdoc

Laura Rachman received her PhD from IRCAM and the Brain and Spine Institute (University Paris 6, Hôpital Pitié-Salpêtrière) in Dec. 2018. She obtained her MSc degree in Cognitive Neuroscience at the University of Amsterdam. Her research focuses on the neural processes of emotion perception in the voice.

Louise Goupil
Postdoc

Louise Goupil is a post-doctoral researcher in Ircam/CNRS. She was trained in cognitive sciences. During her PhD at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris), she investigated the development of self-reflective mecanisms and help seeking behaviors in preverbal infants. Her current research interest is to understand the introspective mecanisms involved in emotional induction by the voice and music using psychophysics and neuroimaging. She is also interested in understanding the involvement of introspection, consciousness and social cognition in the perception and production of music.

Marco Liuni
Research scientist

Marco is a permanent computer music designer in IRCAM, and a contract research scientist with CNRS. His PhD (Paris 6) and postdoc (IRCAM) dealt with applied mathematics and signal processing. As a musician, he graduated in classical guitar and electronic music.

Pablo Arias
Postdoc

Pablo Arias received his PhD from CNRS/IRCAM in Dec. 2018. He holds a MSc degree in engineering from Polytech’ Nantes and a Master in acoustics, signal processing and computer science applied to music from IRCAM. In addition, he is a musician, a composer and a music producer. His research is focused on applying sound processing techniques to understand the induction of emotions by sound.
