Since October 1, 2016, I am with the Media Technology and Interaction Design department, and my research is within the area of Sound and Music Computing (SMC). Specific research topics that I focus on are:
- The development of beat and meter tracking in musical audio signals.
- Music corpus analysis, especially of rhythmic aspects such as tempo, timing, and relation of performance to meter.
- My research in ethnomusicology focuses on the relation of dance and music, in particular in the island of Crete.
Since my arrival at KTH, I extended my above research activities from analysis of audio and symbolic data, to the analysis of motion capture signals. In specific, my new research topics related to this are:
- Computational analysis of human rhythmic behavior in space, for instance in
- Interactive music systems that interpret body movements.
- Studying folk dance traditions.
- Applications for rehabilitation purposes.
- Ethical aspects of computational approaches to music.
Besides my research related to SMC, I also completed a second dissertation in ethnomusicology at the MIAM institute in Istanbul.
We offer a wide range of subjects for Master thesis projects in Sound an Music Computing, a list of projects can be found on our team website.
