Chris Donahue


I am an assistant professor in the Computer Science Department at Carnegie Mellon University. I am also a part-time research scientist at Google Magenta.

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.

Previously, I was a postdoc at Stanford CS advised by Percy Liang. Before that, I completed a PhD at UCSD under Miller Puckette and Julian McAuley.
