Now that I’m a doctor, I can be called to be part of a jury for helping to evaluate PhD students. Today was my first experience doing that, and it was double special because the other jury member was Axel Roebel — with whom I started my research career.
Thanks to Javier Nistal, Gaël Richard and Steffan Lattner for inviting me!
This last month, I have submitted my doctoral thesis entitled “Deep Neural Networks for Music and Audio Tagging”. I’ll be defending next November 15th, and I’m excited to announce that my jury will be conformed by Geoffroy Peeters, Perfecto Herrera, and Juhan Nam.
After five years at the Music Technology Group, I’m pretty excited to announce that I have accepted a full-time position as a researcher at Dolby Laboratories in Barcelona! I’m very happy to see how professional opportunities around machine learning keep growing in Barcelona. Our beloved city is becoming, more and more, an important AI hub in south Europe — what’s great, because it allows me to keep doing my job while being close to my friends and family!
