Research description

I am currently working on the Shake It Project at INESC Porto on the analysis and synthesis of groove in music.

My previous research interests have focused on music information retrieval, specifically on the problem on beat tracking for musical audio.
I have also worked on object-based coding, the analysis of music-therapy improvisations and on sparse representations as part of the EU-SMALL project.
