I am currently Lecturer and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow at the Centre for Digital Music, Centre for Intelligent Sensing, Institute of Applied Data Sciences, and Machine Listening Lab of Queen Mary University of London, Turing Fellow at the Alan Turing Institute, and Honorary Visiting Fellow at the Department of Computer Science, City, University of London. My main research topic is audio and music signal analysis, applied to music information retrieval and computational sound scene analysis.

In addition to a RAEng Research Fellowship (2015-20) I have been principal- and co-investigator for several research projects, including the EPSRC-funded ISCR project on sound scene analysis, the MIP-Frontiers European Training Network, the MSINGERS Newton Fund project on singing transcription, and the AHRC-funded DML and ASyMMuS projects.
