I am a Research Fellow working at the Department of Electronic & Electrical Engineering at Trinity College Dublin. I lecture on the MPhil in Music and Media and hold a PhD in Sonification, the use of sound to represent and communicate data. My previous research project explored auditory display for large-scale internet of things (IoT) networks. It was based at the CONNECT Centre in TCD and funded by an IRC postdoctoral fellowship.

My current research involves critically engaged approaches to the multimodal representation of complex multivariate data (gestural data, IoT/sensor networks) and the application of generative, AI and ML principles in human-computer interaction (HCI), creative multimedia and music technology contexts.

I employ both 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 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.
