Research Interests

I am interested in musical analysis - particularly in real-time in the context of live performances. Examples include beat tracking, chroma analysis and chord recognition. I am also interested in how the result of this analysis can be used to build live performance systems such as automatic accompaniment systems and intelligent audio effects.

Prior to my PhD I studied at Royal Holloway, University of London for an undergraduate degree in Computer Science, moving afterwards to Queen Mary to study for an MSc in Digital Music Processing.
