About me

Since October 1, 2016, I am with the Division of Media Technology and Interaction Design, and my research specialization is Sound and Music Computing. Specific research topics that I focus on are:

  • Ethical and sustainability aspects of computational approaches to music, and the arts in general.
  • Historically informed design of electronic music instruments.
  • The development of beat and meter tracking in musical audio signals.
  • Music corpus analysis, especially of rhythmic aspects such as tempo, timing, and relation of performance to meter.
  • The relation of dance and music, in particular in the island of Crete.
  • Interactive music systems that interpret body movements.

I also completed a second dissertation in ethnomusicology with the subject of dance tradition in Crete, Greece.

We offer a wide range of subjects for student thesis projects in Creative Media Technology, a list of projects can be found on our team website.
