Worked in the Audio Research Group as a researcher and as a post-graduate student March 2002 - January 2009, obtaining Dr. Tech. in January 2009. My research focused on automatic music-content analysis and, especially, on the automatic transcription of music and its applications. This work was funded by Tampere Graduate School in Information Science and Engineering (TISE).
