My PhD project is finished and while wrapping up the last things I started as a researcher at INCAS3. My research here will continue the work of my PhD, sound source recognition in uncontrolled environments. The recognition tools will be used by our partners in the Human Centered Soundscape project.

Furthermore I'll focus on the process of annotation, both as a tool, to produce ground truths for machine learning and to create summaries, and to learn about what people hear in a audio signal. This last point may give insight in which sources draw attention.
