The following members of the Interesting Patterns Research Team are primarily active on the DS4DEMS project:
Tijl De Bie is Full Professor at Ghent University, ELIS Department, and Reader at the University of Bristol, Department of Engineering Mathematics. His interests are centred around data science in the broad sense and its applications. Some of the areas he is particularly interested in are: music information retrieval, bioinformatics, web and text mining, and media analysis. His theoretical focus is currently on subjective interestingness in data mining.
Matt McVicar is a Research Associate in Data Science at the University of Bristol. He is Co-PI on the 2 year EPSRC-funded project Data Science for the Detection of Emerging Music Styles. His research interests are focused on data-driven applications to Music Information Retrieval tasks, and in particular the use of freely-available internet resources to solve these problems.
Cedric Mesnage is a Research Associate at the University of Bristol working on the EPSRC-funded project Data Science for the Detection of Emerging Music Styles. Previously, he worked at Queen Mary University of London in the Center for Digital Music and before that at the University of Lugano in the faculty of Informatics. His interests include big data analytics, music information retrieval, the semantic web and areas where these meet.
Jefrey Lijffijt is a Research Associate at the University of Bristol. Previously, he worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher at Aalto University with Prof. Aristides Gionis and Prof. Samuel Kaski. I defended my doctoral dissertation at Aalto University in December 2013, my advisor was Prof. Heikki Mannila. Before his doctoral studies, he worked as a consultant in predictive analytics at Crystalloids, Amsterdam, and as a research intern at Philips Research, Eindhoven. His research focus has been on statistical modeling and pattern mining in various types of data, most prominently natural language corpora.
Eirini Spyropoulou is currently a Research Engineer at Toshiba Telecommunications Research Lab, and a Visiting Fellow at the University of Bristol, UK. She was awarded her PhD in Data Mining from the University of Bristol, in November 2013. Her PhD supervisor was Dr. Tijl De Bie. She also holds a Masters on Speech and Language Processing (CSTIT) from the University of Cambridge and an MEng. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA).
