Biosketch

I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece and received my Diploma degree in Media Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm, Sweden in September 2006. My Master’s degree thesis, which was conducted at the Department of Speech, Music and Hearing (TMH – Fant Laboratorium), under the supervision of Kjetil Falkenberg Hansen and Prof. Anders Askenfelt, was in music acoustics and specifically the sound of clarinet. This thesis was an unofficial part of the European project VEMUS.

Since January 2007 I was a Ph.D. candidate in CVSP group – at the Electrical and Computer Engineering School in the National Technical University of Athens, Greece – under the supervision of Prof. Petros Maragos in the general areas of Audio and Multimedia Processing. During this period, I partially participated in the EU MUSCLE project, with human movie annotation and human evaluations. My research interests lie in the areas of music information retrieval and audio processing and include analysis and recognition.

In December 2013 I received my PhD degree with title “Music Signal Processing and Applications in Recognition”. I currently work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in CVSP group in related topics and I paricipate in various European and Greek research programs.

I have also studied musicology for four semesters at Stockholm University in Sweden. It is not hard to understand that when not studying my biggest obsession is music – listening, reading, playing and talking about it. Some of my other interests are photography and photo editing, books, movies and travelling.

For my doctoral studies in the area of MIR since February 2011, my research has been co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund – ESF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “Education and Lifelong Learning” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) – Research Funding Program: Heracleitus II. Investing in knowledge society through the European Social Fund.
