About Me

I’m a Senior Lecturer in Audio and Music Technology in the AudioLab, Department of Electronic Engineering, University of York.

I have delivered a variety of audio-related modules at both undergraduate and masters level including:

  • Music Technology, Creation and Perception (Y1 B/MEng)
  • Acoustics and Psychoacoustics (Y2 B/MEng)
  • Voice production and synthesis (Y2 B/MEng)
  • Music Performance Analysis Systems (Y4 MEng/MSc)
  • Music Perception Critical Listening (Y4 MEng/MSc)
  • Acoustics and Psychoacoustics (MSc)
  • Virtual Acoustics (MSc)
  • Project Development (MSc)
  • Personal Professional Practitioner (MSc)

I am dedicated to establishing inclusive and engaging learning environments where all students can thrive.

I first started working in the Audio Lab in 2003 as a Research Associate on a variety of projects – mostly related to singing voice and technology. You can find out more about my research projects here.

In 2014 I completed my doctoral studies –  researching into singing performance and virtual acoustics – centring on the Virtual Singing Studio, as a means to explore how singing performance changes in different acoustic environments.

I have over 25 years’ experience as an arts and events project manager: I’ve lead a number of performances, events and projects which encourage arts and science/engineering collaboration such as Netvotech, I Hear Too, Space-Net and more recently I Hear Too: Live – II commissioned as part of the Dafx  2012 conference.

I’m involved in a number of art/music/engineering projects including Architexture (PI), Sonicules (PI) and Eonsounds (Co-I).
