Rose Qianyi Sun works at the intersection of musicology, artificial intelligence, and data science, with a mission to make creative practices more inclusive. She is finishing up her Master’s in Music Technology at Georgia Tech. Her current research centers on developing interpretable evaluation metrics for AI-generated music, drawing from principles in music theory and perception. With a background in traditional Chinese music, Rose also loves to explore how technology can facilitate the composition and consumption of understudied music traditions. She is also a flutist with a repertoire in classical, rock and pop, and experimental music.

At Georgia Tech, Rose serves as the President of Women in Music Tech, where she fosters a supportive community for women to exchange knowledge, build connections, and thrive in this dynamic field.
