I am a Senior Lecturer in Music and Audio Technology in the department of Creative Technology Department and a board member of EMERGE Experimental Media Research Centre at Bournemouth University. I am music technologist, composer, sound practitioner, and researcher. I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Music Informatics from the Ionian University (Greece), a MusM in Electroacoustic Composition & Interactive Media from The University of Manchester and a PhD in Music Technology from De Montfort University.

My work and research falls in the area of sensory ethnography with sound and the role of recorded speech, and soundscapes in the way new artistic musical works and narratives can be created. Also, to the role of artistic work in raising awareness about the importance of cultural heritage. Special importance is placed on the synergy of soundscape recordings, verbal narration, technology and the opportunities provided by the electroacoustic studio.


Research interests/expertise include topics such as:

Composition focusing on recorded urban sound sources and DSP. Construction of storytelling in music. Acoustic ecology. The use of archival audio recordings in the creation of artworks. Oral history. Interactive installations. Analytical approaches to audio and video games. Pedagogy of music technology.
