Having obtained a Bachelor of Music in 2013 from the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon, Manon Louviot commenced a Research Master programme at the Centre d’Études Supérieures de la Renaissance in Tours, spending one year as an Erasmus student at the Universität Regensburg. Her master’s thesis centred on a late fourteenth-century fragment of polyphonic music preserved in Douai. Between 2016 and 2019, Manon worked at Utrecht University on her doctoral dissertation within the international HERA research project “Sound Memories”, under the supervision of Karl Kügle and Ulrike Hascher-Burger. She taught medieval and renaissance music history during the 2020 spring semester at the Conservatoire de Musique et de Danse in Paris, after which she held a postdoctoral position at KU Leuven in David Burn's CELSA project.
She is currently a post-doctoral researcher in Catherine Bradley's ERC project “Benedicamus Domino”.
