Ye Wang

Ye Wang is an Associate Professor in the Computer Science Department at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He established and continues to direct the Sound and Music Computing (SMC) Lab within the NUS School of Computing. Before joining NUS, he was a Member of the Technical Staff at Nokia Research Center in Tampere, Finland for 9 years. His most recent sabbatical leave was spent at the School of Computer Science, Fudan University (October 2011 to January 2012), and at Harvard Medical School (February to July 2012).

His research interests are in the area of Mobile Computing and Sound and Music Computing (SMC); in particular, Sound Analysis and Music Information Retrieval (MIR), with an emphasis on applications in edutainment and e-Health. Special emphasis is placed on determining the effectiveness of computer supported assistive technology in music education and music therapy via subjective and objective evaluations. Two active projects focus on the design and evaluation of systems to support (1) therapeutic gait training using rhythmic auditory stimulation (RAS); and (2) ear training and singing practice via clinically relevant feedback.
