I am a PhD Student at the school of Brain, Mind and Computer Science, University of Padua.
In September 2018 I graduated cum laude at the master degree in Computer
Science from the Department of Mathematics of the University of Padua, where
I also got my bachelor degree.
Aside from the University, I had a musical education at the Conservatory "Cesare
Pollini" where I attended the Base Course in Mandolin. In my spare time I also
like to fold Origamis, and I co-founded the university theatre group "Beolco-Ruzzante".
Computational Creativity is a multidisciplinary field that unites Computer Scientists, Engineers, Philosophers, Psychologists and Artists with the common goal of understanding how human creativity works, and if it can be replicated on a machine. When applied to the field of music, one of the most common questions is whether a computer is capable of composing music on its own.
My studies focus on Algorithmic Composition, based on the automated study of hierarchical structures in music, hoping to create a meta-description level of melodic and harmonic structures that can help create music by computer that is both novel and human-like.
