, 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!
After college, I started my PhD program 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'm doing 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.
Currently, I’m passionate about developing (software) tools for musicians: for educational purposes and for fun.
