5-year Research Fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering
I’ve been awarded a 5 year research fellowship from the Royal Academy of Engineering for my project “Software Systems for Computer-Aided Music Understanding”. My work will be carried out at the Centre for Digital Music, part of Queen Mary’s qMedia centre and the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science. No decision has been made yet as to when I will start the work [edit: it's going to be January 2012]. We’re currently doing really interesting work in Last.fm’s MIR team, and it would be great to see some of it through. I expect to take up the fellowship at Queen Mary within the next half year or so. I’m very much looking forward to working with the C4DM folks again! Queen Mary’s Simon Dixon, Andrew Robertson and Mark Plumbley (to name only a few) have given me a lot of support during the application process, as have Masataka Goto, Meinard MÃ¼ller, Sam Davies and Daniel MÃ¼llensiefen. Thanks to all!
