I'm working as a Principal Applied Scientist at Microsoft, involved in deep learning and sound understanding. Previously I was a Software Engineer at Google Research (now Google AI) and prior to that I worked as a Software Engineer at YouTube.

I was a student of Douglas Hofstadter at Indiana University in Bloomington, at the Center for Research on Concepts and Cognition, where I completed a joint Ph.D. in Computer Science and Cognitive Science, with a minor in Music.

My dissertation describes my project Musicat, a computer model of music cognition in the specific domain of melody hearing and analogy-making. For more information on this and other projects, see the Research page.

In addition to my dissertation work, I have collaborated with Christopher Raphael at IU on several music informatics projects. I have also worked as a summer intern at both Microsoft Research and Google Research on music-related projects.
