I’m currently a PhD. Student in Music Technology Group, Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona, Spain. I am interested in signal processing and machine learning for music. In UPF, I work as a researcher in the CompMusic Project and also as a professor in undergraduate courses. My current research involves computational research on different musics across the world. Specifically I work on methodologies to automatically align music scores and audio recordings, and use the linked audio-score data to enhance and/or facilitate related tasks in computational and musicological research.

I received my MSc. degree in Music Technology from Georgia Institute of Technology, USA in 2011 and my BSc. degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from Middle East Technical University, Turkey in 2009. I have also completed a four-year, part-time classical guitar program from Hacettepe University Ankara State Conservatory in 2009.

I play classical guitar and currently I’m trying to learn fretless guitar. I have an interest in contemporary electronic music and I have been part of some electronic music performances, e.g. in laptop orchestras. I also write popular articles about music and technology.
