I graduated from Stanford University in June 2003 with a BA in Music (concentration in Music, Science, and Technology), and from fall of 2003 until summer of 2007 I worked as a Software Engineer at Groove Mobile (formerly Chaoticom, later acquired by Livewire Mobile) in Massachusetts. In September of 2007, I moved back to the west coast and started graduate school at the University of California, San Diego. I completed my Master's Degree in Computer Music from UCSD's Music Department in 2009, and I'm now pursuing a PhD in the same program. My doctoral research is in machine listening - specifically, real-time causal beat tracking (teaching the computer to tap its foot in time to music!). At the same time, I'm deeply involved in audio networking, focusing on remote collaboration. Check out my award-winning open-source networked audio system at http://streaming-audio.googlecode.com.
