I am currently Senior Lecturer and Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science of Queen Mary University of London, being member of the Centre for Digital Music, Centre for Intelligent Sensing, and Institute of Applied Data Sciences within the university and co-leading the School's Machine Listening Lab. Since October 2018 I am also Turing Fellow at The Alan Turing Institute.

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 funded research projects, including the EPSRC-funded ISCR project on sound scene analysis, the MIP-Frontiers European Training Network, and the UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Artificial Intelligence and Music (AIM).
