Vincent Pagel worked in the Speech Synthesis Research Group, from 1996 to 2000.
As our "MBROLA officer", he worked on the MBROLA algorithm (he co-owns the patent on it) and managed the creation of MBROLA databases. He also initiated the MBRDICO Project for multilingual corpus-based phonetization.
He co-founded Babel Technologies, s.a., in 1997.
He is now with Babel Technologies, s.a.
