I'm an Assistant Professor
at the University of Richmond
. My research involves developing (software) tools for musicians, for both educational and recreational purposes. This fall (2020), I'm teaching two sections of Introduction to Computing (CMSC-150)
I earned my PhD in Computer Science at Indiana University Bloomington
under the supervision of Prof. Christopher Raphael
, who heads the Music Informatics program in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering
. There, I conducted research on building smart
(in the sense of Artificial Intelligence
) software that could "listen to" music audio or "read" printed sheet music by applying computer science, statistics, and machine learning techniques.
, my favorite subjects were math
and signal processing
. In the meantime, I was attracted to the fascinating field of music informatics
where I could apply both subjects to solve music related problems!
