Chris Donahue


I am currently a research scientist at Google Magenta, and I will join CMU as an assistant professor in Fall 2023.* Previously, I was a postdoc at Stanford CS advised by Percy Liang. Before that, I completed a PhD at UCSD under Miller Puckette (music) and Julian McAuley (CS).

My research goal is to build music technology that enables a broader set of users to engage with music on a deeper level. To this end, I improve ML methods for generative modeling of music and other multimedia, and build interactive systems which allow anyone to leverage resultant models.
