I am currently a Research Assistant Professor at Stevens Institute of Technology. Previously I was a Visiting Professor at Southern Methodist University and Lecturer at Yale. My current work involves research is at the intersection of artificial intelligence, machine learning, music theory, and programming languages. I am also a composer and have dabbled in other creative areas in the past, and I have a life-long interest in aquariums, fish, and aquatic invertebrates.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where can I hear other examples of Kulitta’s music?
    On my SoundCloud page there is a playlist of Kulitta-made music. There are also examples on my Kulitta page along with more information on the system.
  • How can I get updates on new pieces, articles, etc?
    For just compositions, follow me on SoundCloud. For everything else, follow me on Facebook. If you follow me on Facebook (but don’t friend), you’ll get updates on new compositions, visualizations, publications, libraries I maintain (Kulitta & Euterpea), and various other work-related projects of mine. If you friend me, you’ll also get occasional shared things that I find humorous (typically bad music puns) and periodic pictures of hermit crabs, snails, and corals. I do not currently use Twitter or other social media sites.
