I’m researcher in Music Data Science, specialized in Recommender Systems, Natural Language Processing, and Deep Learning with audio and text. I got my PhD in 2017 at the Music Technology Group of the Pompeu Fabra University in Barcelona.
I’m currently working as Research Scientist at Pandora. I’m also Assistant Professor of Machine Learning at the Pompeu Fabra University. I have more than 20 publications in top-tier peer-reviewed conferences and journals. I hold a B.S. in Computer Science, a B.A. in Musicology, and a Major in Jazz Composition.
I also work as a composer for films, and produce my own crazy songs. I sing and play guitar, timple (a kind of ukelele from the Canary Islands), and synthesizers.
