I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science at University College London. I am a member of CREST, the Software Systems Engineering group, and an affiliate member of the UCL Centre for Digital Humanities. Prior to UCL, I was a Lecturer/Senior Lecturer at King’s College London where I helped to found CREST as its deputy director, and before that was a Lecturer at UMIST/University of Manchester. I received my PhD from the University of Durham in 2000.
My research tackles questions of computational support for creativity across various domains, working in digital arts/humanities (especially computational musicology) and software engineering. I am particularly interested in interactive human-computer ensemble performance of popular music, applications of music technology in health, methods for supporting software engineers using source code analysis, and the relationship between software engineering and music processes more generally. This site has more information about my research (including publications), teaching, and activity as a musician.
