Saranya Balasubramanian


… is a computer engineer at the ACDH-CH. She has a master's degree in computing systems engineering from Politecnico di Milano where she majored in sound and music engineering. She then obtained a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship to do her PhD on the 'Mathematical modelling of wind instruments' at the Department of Music Acoustics, University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna.

At the ACDH-CH she will apply NLP/text technologies using Python in LinkedCat+ project.
