Om mig

My main research interest is in the use of music technology for enriching peoples' lives. I have a crossdisciplinary background in pedagogy, music science and music technology. 

The research focus is on music and expressivity, and particularly how music technology and interaction with sound can enrich people's lives and be employed in training, rehabilitation and in therapy. Currently, I have five doctoral students; one as main supervisor and four as co-supervisor.

I am a member of the Sound and Music Computing Group.
