I'm an Assistant Professor at the University of Richmond. My research involves developing (software) tools for musicians, for both educational and recreational purposes. This fall (2020), I'm teaching two sections of Introduction to Computing (CMSC-150).

I earned my PhD in Computer Science at Indiana University Bloomington under the supervision of Prof. Christopher Raphael, who heads the Music Informatics program in the School of Informatics, Computing, and Engineering. There, I conducted research on building smart (in the sense of Artificial Intelligence) software that could "listen to" music audio or "read" printed sheet music by applying computer science, statistics, and machine learning techniques.

In college, my favorite subjects were math and signal processing. In the meantime, I was attracted to the fascinating field of music informatics where I could apply both subjects to solve music related problems!
