My primary research context considers whether music can be incorporated within technological interfaces to affect user behaviour and experience. We have termed this research field Affective Musical Interaction (AMI).

Within the context of AMI, my research compares different HCI methodologies. AMI experiments are being performed in the laboratory, in the classroom and remotely. The aim is to compare the benefits and limitations of adopting a particular methodological approach using a cost-benefit anaylsis. While also considering if and how the methodological approach affects the experimental outcomes.

My research is supervised by Profressor Helen Petrie and Dr Alistair Edwards. My PhD research is supported by an EPSRC Doctoral Training Account (DTA) Studentship.
