I’m a lecturer in the Research School of Computer Science, a music technology researcher, and a computer musician and percussionist.

I studied music, maths, and computing at the ANU in the early 00s then got interested in using computers in performance, in particular creating new musical instruments and performance environments. This really opened up a new creative world for me and worked as a musician for a while starting groups like Ensemble Evolution and Last Man to Die. In those groups I did a lot of close work with visual artists, musicians, and actors to develop interactive visuals and new kinds of performance space.

For the last few years, I’ve been researching how mobile computer and machine learning can work together in musical instruments of the future.
