Researcher | Engineer | Designer | Musician
Camille Noufi is a vocalist, research engineer, and current PhD candidate in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) at Stanford University. She is fascinated by the human voice as a means of expressive communication. Her research utilizes signal processing, machine learning and human-computer-interaction techniques to study the nuances of vocal expression, production and perception. She seeks to understand how current technologies leverage the voice, and position the voice to augment expressive, humanistic, and equitable technological interaction.Camille is an active member of CCRMA's Music Engagement Research Initiative lead by Prof. Jonathan Berger. She is also a founding member/instrument designer of, and performer in, the first Stanford Laptop Orchestra (SLorK) "LaptOpera", lead by Dr. Anne Hege and Prof. Ge Wang.
Before coming to CCRMA, Camille conducted research on voice and audio signal processing at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. She studied vocal impairment in children following traumatic brain injury under Dr. Thomas Quatieri and automated audio scene analysis under Dr. Michael Brandstein. She holds a degree with honors in Electrical & Computer Engineering (BSEE-cum laude) and pursued a vocal performance Music degree (BA) at the University of Colorado-Boulder.
A proud Colorado native, Camille is an avid outdoor enthusiast. She spends most of her free-time exploring nature's beauty through backpacking, rock climbing, skiing, and making music with friends around a campfire.
