Prof. Dr. Meinard Müller

Meinard Müller received the Diploma degree (1997) in mathematics and the Ph.D. degree (2001) in computer science from the University of Bonn, Germany. After his postdoctoral studies (2001-2003) in Japan and his habilitation (2003-2007) in multimedia retrieval in Bonn, he worked as a senior researcher at Saarland University and the Max-Planck Institut für Informatik (2007-2012). Since 2012, he has held a professorship for Semantic Audio Signal Processing at the International Audio Laboratories Erlangen, a joint institute of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. His recent research interests include music processing, music information retrieval, audio signal processing, and motion processing. He was a member of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee (2010 to 2015), a member of the Senior Editorial Board of the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine (2018 to 2022), and a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (2009 to 2021, being its president in 2020/2021). Currently, he is a member of the Editorial Board of the Transactions of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (since 2017). In 2020, he was elevated to ACM Senior Member and to IEEE Fellow for contributions to music signal processing.
