My research interests include multimedia information retrieval, machine learning, data mining and databases. My current research (as of 2003) and thesis topic focus on music database search, indexing and retrieval based on perceived similarity, that is, given a piece of musical recording (in raw audio format), how can we find similar (but not necessarily identical) pieces from the database? A more detailed description and some sound samples can be found here. Prior to this, I did research on data mining algorithms, computer vision and machine learning.

Here is a list of my publications:
