I am currently Senior Lecturer at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science of Queen Mary University of London and Turing Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute. Within Queen Mary, I am member of the Centre for Digital Music, Centre for Intelligent Sensing, Institute of Applied Data Science, and Digital Environment Research Institute, and I co-lead the School's Machine Listening Lab.

My main research topic is computational audio analysis, also referred to as machine listening or computer audition - applied to music, urban, everyday and nature sounds. Between 2015-2020 I was Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow and have been principal- and co-investigator for several audio-related funded research projects on topics related to sound scene analysis, music information retrieval, and digital musicology. I am also investigator for the MIP-Frontiers European Training Network and the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence and Music (AIM).
