Research Interests

My principal research interests are in Human Computer Interaction, Pervasive and Tangible Computing, and Music Computing. I also have interests in Technology Enhanced Learning. I am Co-Investigator on the E-Sense Project and the Older People and Technological Inclusion ESRC Seminar Series. I have devised numerous human-centred computing innovations such as Harmony Space, the Haptic Drum Kit, the Audio GPS, and Direct Combination.

Current Research Projects Include
Using Embodied Cognition to improve Music Interaction Design.
Using whole body movement to understand and control musical harmony.
Exploring computational models of rhythm perception.
Using haptic feedback to help people learn multi-limb rhythms.
Tools for understanding and controlling harmony visually.
Older people and Technological Innovation (EU funded Project)
Older people and Technological inclusion (ESRC Seminar Series)
Designing and testing musical instruments controlled directly by the brain.
