Academic interests

  • interactive music systems
  • motion sonification
  • tempo and timing

Research Project

My main line of research is currently the development of expressive accompaniment systems (EAS) for machine musicianship, which are time-aware on multiple scales. Particular topics include: implementing dynamic timing and timbre adjustment into an expressive drum machine, endowing interactive music systems (IMS) with multimodal feedback, and interactive machine learning for the above functions from the micro (millisecond), to the supra (between performances) scale. I have also been working on practice-led research into motion and gesture sonification for interactive performance.

Tasks Performed

I conduct research and develop interactive software & hardware in the Sound & Light Digital Interaction lab.

Since 2017, I’ve been coordinating the Interactive Technology for Performing and Media Arts (ITPMA) MA programme, where I teach Creative Coding and Interactive Music Systems and supervise student projects and dissertations.


I defended my PhD thesis, Dynamic Music Representations for Real-Time Performance, in 2016 at the University Politehnica of Bucharest. In 2014-15 I worked as a visiting doctoral researcher on the Antescofo project at IRCAM, Paris. Previously I completed an MMus in Music Technology and Computer Music (with Distinction) at the University of Leeds. My main drive has always been the potential for dynamic augmentation of musical expression.

Outside academia, my main passions are noisy music, 20th century cinema, and road cycling. However, they have all taken a back seat since I became a dad in June 2018.
