Bio

My research focuses on animal sound and machine learning (AI). I develop methods to understand animal behaviour and monitor animal populations, using modern computational methods to uncover new evidence from audio data.

Collaboration

My position is a joint appointment with Naturalis Biodiversity Centre, via JADS. We are building collaborations for large-scale monitoring of biodiversity using multimedia and deep learning.
