Academic staff

Research Interests

I am a researcher in the fields of Semantic Audio Analysis, Machine Listening
Informed Signal Processing. That means that my PhD students and I together
develop novel methods integrating concepts from machine learning
signal processing
, statistical modelling, numerical optimization and many
other fields. We apply our methods to audio and music data - see
here a few
example applications.

My background is in Computer Science and Mathematics. I did a PhD in Computer
Science at the University of Bonn, Germany, which was supervised at the
Max-Planck-Institute for Informatics, Saarbr
ΓΌcken, Germany. Currently, I am a
lecturer in signal processing in the School of Electronic Engineering and
Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, conducting research
within the Centre For Digital Music (C4DM
) in the programme <i>Fusing Audio
And Semantic Technologies
</i> (FAST). Further, I am one of the academic
leaders of the Machine Listening Lab
at QMUL.
