As you may have noticed...

My name is Diego Di Carlo and I come from Vicenza.

Since October 2017, I am a Ph.D. candidate at Inria in the PANAMA team in the beautiful city of Rennes (Fr) and in the Multispeech team in Nancy (Fr).
Under the supervision of Antoine Deleforge and Nancy Bertin, we are shedding light on how acoustic echoes helps indoor audio signal processing and how (and if) it is possible to estimated them.

Previously, I visited prof. Sharon Gannot at University of Bar-Ilan and Antoine Liuktus at INRIA Nancy.

Primordial Soup

I graduated in Compute Engineering in 2017 from Universitá degli Studi di Padova with a thesis on Music Interference Reduction with Gaussian Process. This worked was supervided by Nicola Orio and Antoine Liutkus and it was conducted while I was at Multispeech Team in INIRA Nancy France.

Before of this... well Hic Sunt Dracones.
