I studied Mathematics and Musicology at Humboldt University Berlin and as a Fulbright visiting student at the University of California, Berkeley. Subsequently, I worked  at the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence in Vienna. I obtained my PhD in Music Technology from McGill University, Montreal, as a Harman Scholar of the Audio Engineering Society and as a fellow of the NSERC-CREATE Auditory Cognitive Neuroscience Network. Since Dec 2015, I am postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Medical Physics and Acoustics at the University of Oldenburg. When not at work, I play with my kids, make noise with keyboard instruments, or both.
