Biography

Nicolas Côté was born in, France in 1982. After studying Physics in Lille, France, he carried on with studies in Audiovisual Engineering in Valenciennes, France. He received a Master of Acoustic and Signal Processing applied to Music Signals from the Pierre and Marie Curie University (Paris 6) in 2005. He joined the CNRS-LIMSI laboratory in 2005 and completed his master's thesis on "Quality of Wideband Telephone Speech". He then joined France Télécom R&D in Lannion, France and Deutsche Telekom Laboratories in Berlin, Germany, as a joint PhD student in 2005.
