Repères biographiquesShort Biography

Gaël Richard is the executive director of Hi! Paris, Professor at Télécom Paris, Institut Polytechnique de Paris and head of the Image, Data, Signal (IDS) department. His research work lies at the core of digitization and is dedicated to the analysis, transformation, understanding and automatic indexing of acoustic signals (including speech, music, environmental sounds) and to a lesser extent of heterogeneous and multimodal signals. In particular, he developed several source separation methods for audio and musical signals based on machine learning approaches.

Gaël Richard received the State Engineering degree from Télécom Paris, France (formerly ENST) in 1990, the Ph.D. degree from University of Paris-sud  in 1994 in speech synthesis (prepared at LIMSI-CNRS), and the Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (HDR) degree from the University of Paris-sud in September 2001.

After the Ph.D. degree , he spent two years at the CAIP Center, Rutgers University, Piscataway, NJ, in the Speech Processing Group of Prof. J. Flanagan, where he explored innovative approaches for speech production. From 1997 to 2001, he successively worked for Matra-Nortel and for Philips,  France. In particular, he was the Project Manager of several large scale European projects in the field of audio and multimodal signal processing.

In September 2001, he joined Télécom Paris, where he is now a Full Professor in audio signal processing, Head of the Image, Data, Signal department and executive director of Hi! Paris, the joint center of Hec Paris and Institut polytechnique de Paris on artificial intelligence and data analytics for society. He is a coauthor of over 220 papers and inventor in a number of patents.  He was an Associate Editor of the IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech and Language Processing between 1997 and 2011 , one of the guest editors of the special issue on “Music Signal Processing” of IEEE Journal on Selected Topics in Signal Processing (2011) and the lead guest editor of a special issue of the IEEE Transactions on ASLP on sound scene and event recognition (2017). He currently is a member (vice-chair) of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee, member of the EURASIP and AES and fellow member of the IEEE.
