Dr Dave Moffat
Research Assistant in Audio Signal Processing and AI
Faculty of Arts and Humanities
David Moffat is a postdoctoral researcher on the RadioMe project. He previously worked as a postdoc within the Audio Engineering Group of the Centre for Digital Music at Queen Mary University London. His research focuses is on intelligent and assistive mixing and audio production tools through the implementation of semantic tools and machine learning. His PhD, from Queen Mary University London, focused on sound effect synthesis and evaluation. He has since developed new methods and approaches for sound synthesis, from this understanding of the field. He received an MSc in Digital Music Processing from Queen Mary University of London in 2014, and graduated from Edinburgh University with a BSc in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science in 2011.
PhD in Computer Science and Music, Queen Mary University of London.
MSc (Dist.) in Digital Signal Processing, Queen Mary University of London.
BSc(Hons.) in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Science, University of Edinburgh.
