Cédric Camier joined the School of Information Studies in January 2014 as a postdoctoral fellow at the Multimodal Interaction Laboratory (MIL), working on psychoacoustic and moving source spatial reproduction with Dr. Catherine Guastavino.
Dr. Camier received an Engineering Diploma and a MSc research degree in acoustics and aeroacoustics from Université de Poitiers and École Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs de Poitiers (ENSIP), Poitiers, France (2005), and completed a PhD in non-linear mechanics matter at the École Nationale Supérieure en Technique Avancées (ENSTA), Paris, France, and École Polytechnique, Paris, France (2009). In addition, Dr. Camier is an experienced musician and composer. He is a graduate of Poitiers' Conservatoire à Rayonnement Régional (CRR) and holds an MSc degree in composition from the Université de Montréal. Prior to coming to SIS, Dr. Camier worked as a postdoctoral fellow and affiliated researcher with the Groupe d'Acoustique de l'Université de Sherbrooke (GAUS) and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Music, Media and Technology (CIRMMT).

Jochen Steffens joined the School of Information Studies in January 2014 as a postdoctoral researcher at the Multimodal Interaction Laboratory (MIL), working on heuristics governing global soundscape evaluations with Dr. Catherine Guastavino. His research investigates the effect of crucial moments in temporal experiences on overall retrospective evaluations in the context of soundscape perception. The project is supported by an award from the German Research Foundation (DFG).
Dr. Steffens received a Diploma in Audio and Video Engineering from the University of Applied Sciences and the Robert Schumann School of Music and Media in Düsseldorf, Germany (2007). He completed his PhD degree in engineering from the Technische Universität Berlin in 2013. His research interests are on psychoacoustics, soundscapes, and the process of sound evaluation with its influencing cognitive factors.
