I am interested in how machine learning (and artificial intelligence techniques) when used in an interactive setting can help people to be creative, expressive and acquire skills. My primary use cases are Music and Dance.
My research is fundamentally interdisciplinary and includes many collaborations with students and colleagues. We use mixed methods from Cognitive Psychology, Human-Computer Interaction and Artificial Intelligence. We try to develop systems that can adapt to a user and that the user can adapt to her/his own needs and style. We are conducting hypothesis-driven controlled experiments in our lab with musicians, dancers or novices in certain skills. We also use inductive approaches involving observations and interviews in ecological contexts (for isntance dance or music studios).
