Jérémy Marozeau

Research Fellow, Bionics Institute

Dr Jeremy Marozeau is a Research Fellow at the Bionics Institute. His research is focusing on the perception of music and voice pitch information for people with a cochlear implant.

He received his doctorate from the University of Paris-VI. His dissertation was on the effect of the fundamental frequency on timbre. He did his PhD as part of the Perception and Musical Cognition team at the Institute for Music/Acoustic Research and Coordination (IRCAM, Paris) and as an invited researcher at the Center for New Music and Audio Technologies (CNMAT) of U.C. Berkeley.

After working at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS, Marseille) on modelling the loudness of impulsive sounds, he continued his research on loudness in hearing-impaired listeners as Research Associate at Northeastern University with Dr Mary Florentine.
