I'm currently a Research Engineer at the Centre for Vision, Speech and Signal Processing, working in the project "AI for Sound" led by Prof. Mark Plumbley. Previously I was a Software Engineer at the Systems Engineering and Computer Vision department (Goethe University Frankfurt), where I was involved in the pre-production and research stages of projects related to Civil Engineering and the automotive industry. I hold a BSc in Computer Science (Goethe University) and a degree in Composition (HfMDK Frankfurt).
Areas of specialism
Following the successful application of AI and machine learning technologies to the recognition of speech and images, computer systems can now automatically analyse and recognise everyday real-world sound scenes and events. This new technology presents promising potential applications in environmental sensing and urban living. Specifically, urban soundscape analysis could be used to monitor and improve soundscapes experienced for people in towns and cities, helping to identify and formulate strategies for enhancing quality of life through future urban planning and development.
