Nicolas REMY is a graduate physics, DEA (Diplôme d'études approfondies) and Ph.D. from the Polytechnic School of Nantes with application to architecture, and he realises free lance studies in acoustics and lighting design. He was Maitre de Conference of the Higher Education Schools of Architecture in France and he has taught in Grenoble (2003-2017) and Marseilles (2006-2008). From October 2008, he's teaching at the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly in Volos. He specializes in roomacoustics in environmental acoustics, building acoustics and soundscape studies.
Nicolas REMY is a also member of the Research Centre on Sonic Space and the Urban Environment (CRESSON, CNRS, ENS School of Architecture at Grenoble, France) and deals with the concept of ambience as a a tool and as a method for architectural design. More specifically, his work on the relationship between physics, perception theories and architecture. He has presented his work in several International conferences (France, Greece, England, Italy, Sweden, Portugal, Chine. In 2016 he co-organized the 4th International Conference on Atmospheres and since 2018 she is Co-Director of the Ambiances International Network (1000+ members, 33+ research teams)
