In the past I have worked with music content analysis with signal processing methods. Currently, my work is related to more general audio signal processing.

The research focus of my post-graduate studies was transcribing the drum tracks of normal polyphonic music automatically, and analysing the sectional form of musical pieces. On a more general level I am interested in audio content analysis with signal processing methods (computer audition) including modelling of the auditory process, feature extraction, supervised and unsupervised classification, higher-level modelling, and more complex analysis algorithm design. Currently I am interested in applying all the methods learned so far in some new problems, so if you have an interesting problem, maybe we could collaborate to solve it.
