I have two main areas of expertise on which I am also actively doing research: - Music information retrieval, and in particular the design of computer algorithms that are able to understand music audio like a human music listener does. For example, such algorithms might understand the harmony in music, recognize the melody, feel the beats, etc. Additionally, I am working on algorithms that subsequently use this music understanding for recommending music, making personalized playlists, and manipulating music in creative ways. - Data mining and knowledge discovery i.e. algorithms for the discovery of patterns and relations in large amounts of data.
