Research interests


Machine learning and artificial intelligence for temporal data analysis, especially:

  • multiview learning;
  • structured prediction;
  • representation learning and data decomposition methods;

with applications to:

  • machine listening, music content analysis (MIR) and speech processing;
  • multimodal perception: human behaviour analysis and affective computing, including EEG data analysis;
  • multimedia content analysis, especially joint audiovisual data analysis.

For more information about my research activities check the publications, research software, demos, or educational material I have contributed to. You can also read about the research projects I have been involved in, including the PhD students and post-docs I have advised.
