I am a Research & Teaching Fellow in the Electronics and Electrical Engineering Department at Trinity College Dublin. I hold a PhD in Sonification, the use of sound to represent and communicate data, and I conduct research at the intersection of computer science, music and the creative arts. My current research examines novel multimodal strategies for representing and interacting with complex multivariate data (gestural data, IoT/sensor networks etc.) and the application of generative, AI and ML principles in creative multimedia, music technology and human-computer interaction (HCI) contexts.

I employ empirical and creative arts-based research methods. My empirical work has been widely disseminated through peer-reviewed journal publications, book chapters, and conferences. My musical and creative works span a variety of mediums and styles and are frequently performed at home and abroad. 

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.

Keywords: Sonification, Sonic Information Design, Auditory Display, Human-computer Interaction (HCI), Music, Music Technology, Creative Technologies, Internet of Things, Applied Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence.
