Matthew is a music researcher who focuses primarily on computational methods for music analysis. The are he finds most interesting is when models misalign with musical intuition; as a researcher he continues to interrogate that misalignment, whether that’s a bias of the model or a subjective priority. As a Ph.D student in music theory at the Eastman School of Music, he is currently working on a dissertation with Davy Temperley and serving as co-editor to Intégral. In his free time he likes to take photos, bird watch, rock climb, and play piano with his 4-hands partner (and partner) Eron.
