Academic interests

My PhD studies addresses non-linear audio modelling and deep learning. In particular, the research aims to model audio non-linearities presents in pianoforte. Therefore, the project aims to model and recreate a physical piano in the digital domain capable of bridging the gap between the analog and the digital domains, through the use of deep learning techniques.
