Bio

Dr. Stephen Roddy is a Research Fellow in the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Department at Trinity College Dublin working at the intersection of Computer Science and the Digital Arts. His research explores novel strategies for representing and interacting with complex multivariate data in both human-computer interaction (HCI) and creative arts contexts. He is currently working on the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) principles to gestural control/embodied interaction for automated sound synthesis and music generation. Stephen recently completed an IRC postdoctoral project exploring the development of AI/ML driven HCI and Auditory Display solutions for Large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) Networks at the Connect Centre in Trinity College Dublin.

Stephen adopts an empirical and multidisciplinary approach to research. His interests include HCI & interaction design, IoT, multimodal data analytics, auditory display, sonification,
computer music, sound art, sound design, and the application of AI/ML principles in both HCI and creative arts contexts. His work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed journal publications, book chapters, and conferences. 

Stephen produces multimedia performances, creative works, and art installations as well as tools and systems for the creative and cultural industries. These include augmented/mixed reality experiences and installations, computer music and sound art pieces, and automated systems for live electronic music and sound art performance contexts. Previous projects have been debuted at the Helicotrema Recorded Audio Festival in Venice, the Contemporary Music Centre’s Salon Series at the National Concert Hall of Ireland and Dublin Dance Festival's Embodied at the GPO and the Sonorities Contemporary Music Festival.
