I am currently a research scientist at MXX where I work on several tasks related to audio analysis, machine learning, music recommendation and music information retrieval. I am interested in machine learning & data mining in general and I am always exploring new methods and challenging application areas.
I obtained my PhD in Applied Mathematics from the Department of Applied Mathematics II at the University of Seville. In the scope of my thesis, I developed content-based description methods for the particular case of flamenco music. Most of this work was conducted in the COFLA research project.
I obtained an inter-university BSc and MSc in electrical- and audio-engineering from the Graz University of Technology and the University of Music and Dramatic Arts Graz (Austria). Later on, I obtained a MSc in Sound and Music Computing from Pompeu Fabra University (Spain).
Now and then, I compose electro-acoustic music.
