Mini-bio

I received my Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department from M.I.T. in 1999. At M.I.T., I worked as a research assistant in the Machine Listening Group of the MIT Media Lab. My undergraduate education was completed at Cornell University, in Electrical Engineering, with a concentration on signal processing and some work in music and the psychology of hearing.

My research interests are interdisciplinary, drawing from computer science, signal processing, pattern recognition, psychology, and cognitive science. My Master's Thesis was a model of human spatial hearing, using interaural differences to resolve sound source position in both azimuth and elevation. My Masters Thesis Proposal, which gives a reasonable introduction to my thinking about the topic, is online in hypertext, though it isn't pretty.

In 1996, I mainly worked on systems for automatic music transcription. I was never very satisfied with the results, but if you are really interested, here's a web page from mid 1996 that describes my thinking at the time (the page describes work-in-progress on a later abandoned blackboard system for automatic polyphonic transcription). There are three related references below in the publications section.

My dissertation is about building a system that listens to music and can identify the instruments. he dissertation itself is titled "Sound-source recognition: A theory and computational model".

If you want to know more about my professional life, here's my resume.
