PhD in AI and Music
I started my PhD in AI and Music at the Queen Mary University of London in the fall of 2021. For my PhD, I am exploring the possibility of mix style transfer using deep learning approaches. Multitrack mixing is a highly technical task of combining recorded stems to create a cohesive and well-balanced mix. This involves treating problems like spectral masking, reducing noise and artefacts and also adding aesthetic and creative processing to the stems to generate well-rounded audio of the song. We want to explore the idea of making use of a reference mix to aid the process of multitrack mixing. This approach is different from previous approaches in the sense that it is more intention driven and enables the client to have more control in specifying what kind of mix they are looking for. To get a more elaborate idea, have a look at the poster presentation I made at DMRN-16 organised by the Centre for Digital Music in December 2021 here.
M.Sc. and B.Sc. (Physics)
I had the opportunity to conduct a few experiments in the field of sound and vibration during my undergraduate years when I was pursuing a Bachelor's in Physics [Hons.] Another time, I worked as a researcher (intern) at the Cryogenics department of IIT Kharagpur during the summer of 2019, where we devised a sensor to measure the Liq. Nitrogen levels in cylinders using superconductors. Click on the files to view the documentation of the experiments.

Development of an inductive based level sensor for LN2 level measurement in a tank

(May- June 2019, IIT Kharagpur, West Bengal, India)


A low-cost copper wire wound YBCO single crystal-based level sensor was devised and its performance was evaluated.


Fourier Analysis for woodwind instruments

(Oct 2017- April 2018, SSSIHL, Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, India)

In this project, we analyzed the frequency spectrum of woodwinds, namely saxophone, flute, and clarinet to understand why they have distinctive timbre. We also studied the vibration modes of a clarinet in three different registers.


Study of the forced vibrations of a circular membrane

(Oct 2017- April 2018, SSSIHL, Anantapur, Andhra Pradesh, India)

Evidence of different modes of vibrations of the circular membrane with a change in frequency was explored and compared with the theoretical results given by Bessel’s function.
