About me

I’m a PhD candidate at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Science under the supervision of Marc Schönwiesner and a visiting researcher at the Computational Auditory Perception Group led by Nori Jacoby. My interests are about the cross-cultural diversity in music and the methods we can apply to quantify its characteristics. I combine datasets of music around the world with large scale behavioural experiments to tackle questions about inter-individual and cross-cultural differences in music cognition.

Recently I interned as a research scientist at Deezer Research, Paris where I explored the regional differences in musical diversity and spread of musical trends, drawing perspectives on both population and within-user scales.

I co-founded an artist collective called aiar that aims to fuse science with art. We use brain monitoring devices to transform neural signals to creative musical expressions in a live environment. In my past life and occasionally now in my spare time, I make music (Deezer, Spotify, Apple, Youtube).
