Research

My research is motivated by my background in both engineering and music, and is centred around the Music Information Retrieval (MIR) field. I try to understand the way humans describe music (in terms of melody, tonality, similarity, style or emotion) and use this knowledge to build applications to enhance music listening experiences. My research is interdisciplinary and incorporates knowledge  from signal processing, music theory, cognition and artificial intelligence.

Starting from the music domain, I also research on the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) into human behaviour. In particular, I am interested on the interaction between humans and algorithms, how AI impacts cognitive and socio-emotional development and the impact of algorithms in human decision making.

You can find an updated list of my publications and check my citations at google scholar or researcherID.  I am president-elect of ISMIR , co-editor in chief of TISMIR and involved in  Women in MIR.
