Update September 2013: I moved to Université de Toulouse III, my new webpage: http://www.irit.fr/~Thomas.Pellegrini
Thomas Pellegrini graduated in Physics at the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielles of Paris (ESPCI) in 2003. He received a Masters Degree in Acoustics, Signal Processing, Computer Science Applied to Music in 2003 at IRCAM, Paris VI University (ATIAM). He received a PhD in Computer Science in 2008 at LIMSI-CNRS from the Paris-Sud University, on Speech Recognition for Less-represented Languages. He has been a teaching assistant at Paris La Sorbonne during 2007-2008, teaching mainly object-oriented programming. Since september 2008, he is a post-doc at Spoken Language Systems Lab (L²F).
