I am Principal Scientist at the internet radio Pandora, in Oakland, CA, where I do applied research on personalized music recommendation.
My main research (and previously teaching) activities are in Music Information Retrieval, with a special interest in computational models of rhythm perception, and music pattern recognition.
I have published over 90 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences (h-index: 24), and published a book on computational rhythm description. I also participated to the writing of two research roadmaps, one on Sound and Music Computing in 2007, and one on Music Information Research, published in 2013.
I was general chair of the Sound and Music Computing Conference 2009, general chair of the ISMIR conference 2012, and program chair of the ISMIR conference 2013. Since 2014, I am President-elect of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval.
