Hullo! This is Jingwei, a 3rd-year PhD candidate from NUS Sound & Music Computing Lab supervised by Prof. Ye Wang. I'm broadly interested in computer music and machine learning. I wish my research to render a better experience in enjoyment, interaction, and co-creation of music. My current research focuses on controllable music generation as an assistive tool for music creation and learning.

Before joining NUS, I acquired my B.E. with honours in Automation at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where I was affiliated to Zhiyuan Honours Program. Since my 4th year, I have worked as a research assistant with Prof. Gus Xia at Music X Lab, NYU Shanghai.

I am a professional accordion player and a Baritone singer. I proudly served in SJTU Student Choir during my undergraduate study. I enjoy light and classical music, reading, and jogging.
