Hendrik Purwins (Aalborg University Copenhagen)

I am currently Associate Professor at the Audio Analysis Lab, at Aalborg University Copenhagen. Before that, I had been Assistant Professor at the same University. Previously, I had been researcher at the Neurotechnology and Machine Learning Groups at Berlin Institute of Technology/Berlin Brain Computer Interface. Previously I was lecturer at the Music Technology Group at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona. I have also been head of research and development at PMC Technologies. I have been visiting researcher at Perception and Sound Design Team, IRCAM; CCRMA, Stanford; Auditory Lab, McGill. I have obtained my PhD "Profiles of Pitch Classes" at the Neural Information Processing Group (CS/EE) at Berlin University of Technology, receiving a scholarship from the Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes. Before that, I studied mathematics at Bonn and Muenster University, completing a diploma in pure mathematics. Starting with playing the violin at age of 7, and studying also musicology and acting on the side I also have experience as a performer in concerts and theatre. I have (co-)authored 70 scientific papers. My interests include deep learning and reinforcement learning for music and sound analysis, game strategies and robotics, statistical models for music/ sound representation/expectation/generation, neural correlates of music and 3D (tele)vision, didactic tools for music and dance, and predictive maintenance in manufacturing.
