⭔ Welcome ⭔

I am a doctor of computer science interested in understanding, analyzing and modeling the creative processes used by musicians in their compositions, improvisations and stage performances, as well as creating new computer tools for musician-machine interactions. I use formal and empirical methods from theoretical computer science, natural language processing and machine learning. During my research, I like to perform both quantitative and qualitative studies. I frequently gather feedback during discussions with professional musicians and musicologists using ethnography and grounded theory methodology.
I am also a trained musician with a Music Theory diploma with special interests for jazz, rock/zeuhl, avant-garde, electronic music and vaporwave.

Research interests:

  • Computer Music
    Music generation, human-machine interaction, computational musicology, music structure analysis, machine learning applied to music, music cognition.
  • Theoretical Computer Science
    Formal language theory, automata and semigroups theory, text algorithmics.
  • Other Mathematics Skills
    Signal processing for sound and music, probablistic graphical models, algebra, combinatorics.
