Biography

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin working at the intersecrtion of Computer Science and the Sonic Arts. I lecture on the MPhil in Music and Media and hold a Ph.D. in Sonification, the use of sound to perceptualise data. My research is multidisciplinary and generally focuses on Sonification, Music Composition/Performance and Human-computer Interaction (HCI).

My current research is focused on
the application of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) technologies in Sonification, Music Composition/Performance, and HCI 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, and interactive art. 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.

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.
