Jiaxin Li works as part of the Music Cognition Group (MCG) at the Institute for Logic, Language and Computation (ILLC), University of Amsterdam (UvA). Her PhD project is funded by NWO-OC in collaboration with prof. Henkjan Honing, dr. Ashley Burgoyne, prof. dr. Karline Janmaat and dr. David Baker. She is interested in probing the core components of musicality and how they manifest in different cultures. Computational modelling and behavioural experiments (gamified online and offline cross-cultural experiments) will be combined to investigate these questions. This interest can be traced back to her master’s study in Systematic Musicology at the University of Hamburg, Germany, where she conducted Gold-MSI-SC project with over 300,000 participants. Besides her academic life, she is obsessed with plants at the moment.
