I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin working at the intersection of Computer Science and the Sonic Arts. I lecture on the MPhil in Music and Media and the BAI/MAI in Electronic Engineering. I hold a Ph.D. in Sonification, the use of sound to perceptualize data and convey information. My research is multidisciplinary and involves the application of empirically grounded Human-computer Interaction (HCI) methodologies with a focus on Auditory Display/Sonification, Sound/Music Computing and HCI more generally.

My current research is focused on
the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies in Sonification/Auditory Display, HCI, and Sound/Music Computing contexts. My previous research project, based at the CONNECT Centre in TCD and funded by an IRC postdoctoral fellowship, explored the application of Embodied and Ecological Cognition principles to the design of Auditory Display solutions for Large-scale Internet of Things (IoT) networks. My work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed journal publications, book chapters, and conferences.

I have a vibrant and diverse creative arts practice spanning a variety of media and styles including music composition and performance, sound art installations, interactive art and music for dance and stage. This creative work explores similar themes to my research and has been described as dark, eclectic and experimental. My pieces are frequently performed and installed at home and abroad and I have been described as eclectic, dark and experimental.

Previous events have included 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.
