From October 2008, he's Lecturer at the Department of Architecture of the University of Thessaly in Volos, where he teaches Statics, constructions (1st and 2nd semester) and Acoustics (3rd to 5th and year).
Nicolas REMY is a also member of the Research Centre on Sonic Space and the Urban Environment (CRESSON, www.cresson.archi.fr, CNRS, ENS School of Architecture at Grenoble, France) and deals with the concept of ambience as a a tool and as a method to help architectural design. More specifically, his work on the relationship between physics, perception theories and architecture. He has presented his work in several European conferences (France, England, Italy, Sweden, Portugal, Greece) and international (Xi'an, China). [www.ambiances.net]
