Nicolas Pierret worked in the Speech Coding Research Group, from 1996 to 1998.
His work was mainly on speech coding using CELP techniques. He was the main designer of the Speech Coding Toolkit. He also worked on MBROLA database coding (he co-owns the MBROLA patent)
He is now an independent consultant.
