I joined Google in July 2016 to work on the Magenta project. Our goal is to create music and other art using machine intelligence. Before joining Google, I worked on music recommendations at Smule and music recognition at Microsoft. I received my PhD in Computer Science from the University of Washington, doing work with Steve Seitz on understanding scenes via large online image collections.
