For being an engineer and professional musician whose research involves creating computer assisted methods for making music by both experienced and inexperienced musicians alike. Her computational models of music perception and cognition allow expressive decisions in music by even novice performers that are usually accessible only to musicians after years of practice. Chew's research is being integrated into undergraduate and graduate courses, while her applications are also used as a potential motivator for music education in schools that have otherwise limited arts support.
