Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering

  • Ph.D. financed by Polifonia, an European project founded by the EU Horizon 2020 Programme. The main objective of the Ph.D. is to recognise and extract recurring musical patterns of different nature (melodic, harmonic, rhythmic) that have a musicological and/or perceptual relevance. By means of the interaction between technologies used in the field of Music Information Retrieval and the Semantic Web, the aim is to identify such patterns taking into account both signal-related aspects (DSP) and different types of symbolic notation.

Master’s degree in Digital Humanities and Digital Knowledge

  • Grade: 110/110 with honour
  • Dissertation title: Using Semantic Technologies to support Music Representation Interoperability and Musicological Analysis
  • Dissertation description: This dissertation aims to develop an ontology that can serve musicological research. This ontology proposes to make different types of musical representations interoperable and to describe an extended set of musicological features, previously extracted with algorithms implemented explicitly for this research.

Assistant Researcher

Researcher within the project ArCo4Science (MiBACT). The research project involves the study of a computational approach for analysing large repositories of music content expressed in heterogeneous formats with the aim of identifying and formally representing common and significant patterns that are indicative of music identity and culture.
