Personal Statement

In my research I have a strong focus on the study of emotional experiences with music and the links between the communication of emotion by music and the tone of voice. Currently, I am also engaged in the development of methods and tools that permit the use music for improving different aspects of well-being in everyday life. My research work often combines areas such Music Psychology, Affective Sciences, Computer Sciences, or Healthcare. Before my appointment at Liverpool in 2015, I was a Research Fellow in Music Psychology at the University of Sheffield and the Swiss Center for Affective Sciences (Geneva), and a Research Associate in Affective Computing at the Technical University of Munich and Imperial College London.
