A large part of my identity was destined to be tied to music and technology. I have been eager to know how music is made since the age of five, the time when I began to play the piano and learn music theory. I was attracted to music, which profoundly changed not only how I felt about myself, but also how I felt about everything around me. In time, my interest grew into passion, and it moved from starry-eyed, childish wonder to intellectual awe. I decided that I needed to be in a position to deduce and discover the intricacies of music through science. Now I am a PhD student at Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) and Media & Arts Technology Centre for Doctoral Training (MAT CDT), EECS, Queen Mary University of London, UK, sponsored by China Scholarship Council (CSC).
