CIRMMT Student Representative

CIRMMT's student representative is elected by the student membership and serves on our Board of Directors.  The student representative is responsible for chairing the Student Executive Committee (composed of the 12 axis student coordinators), and for developing new student-initiated activities within the Centre. The student representative consults with students on a regular basis to ensure that their concerns are brought to the Board.

2009-2010 Student representative

Jason Hockman

Background

Jason Hockman is a PhD candidate in the Music Technology Area at McGill University under the supervision of Professor Ichiro Fujinaga. His research focuses upon the computational identification of temporal aspects of music within audio recordings, such as meter identification, beat tracking, and onset detection. He holds a BA in Sociology from Cornell University and a MM in Music Technology from New York University. Aside from his research interests, he also maintains a career as a professional electronic musician.

Personal statement

Having served on CIRMMT's Student Executive Committee over the past year, I am knowledgeable of both the institution's current projects and topics that must be addressed. My priorities this year are to continue the excellent work performed by the previous Student Representatives, Johanna Devaney and John Ashley Burgoyne, which are to increase student participation and collaboration across axes and  between institutions.

Axis Student Coordinators

The axis student coordinators are selected on a yearly basis by the co-leaders of our six research axes.  They are responsible for fostering interdisciplinary research developments amongst the student membership by promoting student research interests within each axis and by consulting with other axis student coordinators.  They represent their axis on the CIRMMT Student Executive Committee and assist with coordination of workshops and axis meetings.
