About me

I am Principal Scientist at the internet radio Pandora, where I do applied research on personalized music recommendation. I also currently serve as President of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval.
My main research interests are in Data Science and Music Information Retrieval. I have published over 90 papers in peer-reviewed international journals and conferences (h-index: 30). I enjoy giving talks to scientists and students.

Before joining Pandora, I received a PhD in Computer Science from the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona (2005) and was a co-founder of Barcelona Music and Audio Technologies (BMAT), did a Post-doc in the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Vienna (2005-2007), and then started and led the Sound and Music Computing Group at INESC TEC in Porto during 7 years (2007-2014),
while teaching at the undergrad and graduate level at the University of Porto.
