About me

I was born in Vigo (Spain) in 1989. I became very involved with music from an early age, and this eventually led me to pursue the trumpet and piano degrees at the Conservatorio Profesional de Música de Vigo. Years after, I also started my major in Composition at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Vigo.

In these years, the exposure to music theory and my own compositional experience triggered my interest in more automated forms of creation. For this reason, I moved to Germany and finished my major under the supervision of Prof. Orm Finnendahl at the HfMDK Frankfurt in 2014, with an emphasis on sound design, algorithmic composition and live electronics.

In this period, my interest in automation and programming kept growing up to the point that I decided to pursue a Bachelor in Computer Science at the Goethe University, which I finished in 2017 with a thesis on carnatic music classification using neural networks under the supervision of Prof. Visvanathan Ramesh. After that, I joined his Systems Engineering and Computer Vision department as a Systems Engineer, working on tasks mainly related to Machine Learning and Software Engineering at the intersection between research and applications.

In 2020 I joined the project AI for Sound, led by Prof. Mark Plumbley at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing (University of Surrey) as a Research Engineer.

As a programmer, I believe in community-based software development, so apart from what you can find in this webpage, the code for most of my projects is also available under various open-source licenses at my GitHub and StackOverflow profiles.
