I’ve been PhD candidate since 2013 in the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona, Spain. I’ve just finished my PhD thesis “Knowledge Extraction and Representation Learning for Music Recommendation and Classification” supervised by Xavier Serra, and funded by a “La Caixa” PhD fellowship. My research interests are related to Deep Learning, Recommender Systems, Natural Language Processing, and Information Retrieval. I love to apply all these techniques to the Music Domain, as music is my passion. Before doing my PhD I got a B.S. in Computer Engineering and a B.A. in Musicology. I have published more than 20 peer reviewed papers in international journals and conferences. Here is a detailed description of my PhD thesis and related publications.
I’ve also been software engineer, with more than 10 years of experience with multiple languages and platforms, more specifically in web development. I’ve also been into entrepeneurship, developing and managing my own start up compartemesa.com, which had more than 10,000 users.
