  • Interactive Sonification
  • Auditory perception
  • Using Music for Design
  • Technology for physical actvity and reducing sedentariness

Brief biography

My research interests are based in how sound can be used to improve people's interaction with technology. My PhD focused on how the implicitly understood and embodied aspects can be used in sonifications for physical activity to directly modify body behaviour.

I am curently exploring how music can be used to promote breaktaking and wellbeing in the workplace.
