    Machine LearningComputational CreativityMusic Technology


    I am a PhD student at Queen Mary, University of London, under the supervision of Prof. Elaine Chew and Prof. Pat Healey in the Centre for Digital Music research group. I have an MA in Music Technology from The University of York and a BSc in Music and Audio Technology from Bournemouth University. I originally went into the music technology area with an interest in audio engineering and music production, and slowly discovered the amazing possibilities for music making and creativity that a knowledge of computer science and engineering can offer, and gained an interest in computer music, especially algorithmic and procedurally generated music. This led me to doing a Masters degree at York where I studied with Dave Malham, Dr. Tony Myatt, Dr. Ambrose Field and Oli Larkin, who I greatly respect and who taught me much in the area of sound spatialisation, computer music and experimental aesthetics in new music. Thus, my background before starting my research has been mostly centered around tools such as Max/MSP and Supercollider. Some time ago I also worked as a programmer of VST Plug-ins and Android applications, some of which you can find on this site. I am also a musician under the name Madcoil, and a member of the progressive metal band Abodean Skye.
