I studied Mathematics and Musicology at Humboldt University Berlin and as a Fulbright visiting student at UC Berkeley. I conducted my masters thesis in mathematical signal processing with Monika Doerfler at the University of Vienna, before working at the Austrian Research Institute for Artificial Intelligence. I then went to McGill University, Montreal, to work with Stephen McAdams on timbre perception. I obtained my PhD in Music Technology from McGill in 2016. I then joined Simon Doclo’s Signal Processing Group at the University of Oldenburg, Germany. In 2017, I received the best paper award at the Int. Conf. on Digital Audio Effects (DAFX) in Edinburgh, UK and I am co-editor of the Springer handbook on Timbre: Acoustics, Perception, and Cognition. I recently received a Freigeist Fellowship from the Volkswagen Foundation to study music perception of hearing impaired listeners.
