My research interests include audio analysis, machine learning and music information retrieval. In the scope of my thesis, I am developing content-based description methods for the particular case of flamenco music. Most of this work is conducted in the COFLA research project. I am interested in machine learning & data mining in general and I am always exploring new methods and challenging application areas.
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.
