Current Research Interests 

I am currently working on my PhD at the Centre for Digital Music - Queen Mary University of London.

My research is supported by the MAT programme

I am a member of the Augmented Instruments Laboratory.

Some of the questions that are currently buzzing in my mind:

  • What can an instrument tell us about the tacit assumptions and expectations that are at the genesis of the design process? 
  • How specific musical knowledge and values are embedded within a new musical instrument? 
  • How diverse musical backgrounds, technical skills and cultural environments influence the design of a new musical instrument?
  • Being even more cryptic: how subjectivities are transferred/translated into a new music design?

Here you can find some more details on my doctoral quests.
