I am a PhD Candidate at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (MCG – UvA). My research focuses in the computational analysis and modeling of expressive performance gestures using statistical methods. I am particularly interested in studying the characterisation of individual performance styles. My supervisors are Henkjan Honing and Ivan Titov.
I obtained degrees in sound and music computing (MSc, 2010- 2012 Universitat Pompeu Fabra), music technology (BA, 2002-2006 Koninklijk Conservatorium, Den Haag) and music performance (BMus, 2002-2006 Conservatorium van Amsterdam and Título Superior de Música, 2002 Conservatorio Superior de Música de Salamanca). I as well followed studies in Computer Science at the UNED and LIACS. Before starting my PhD I worked during 1 year as a Software Test Engineer at a software consultancy, 4 years as a Producer at the dutch public broadcasting corporation (Radio4) and several years as a freelance music performer and producer.
