I graduated in 2016 from Buckinghamshire New University with a First Class (Hons) degree in Audio and Music Production and was presented the award for outstanding achievement in media production. I subsequently moved to the University of Derby and completed a Master of Arts in Music Production, passed with Distinction.

Now a postgraduate research student at Derby, my research interests include Spatial Audio, Perceptual Technologies, Music Composition and Audio Production. I am currently researching practical applications of spatial concepts in acousmatic music with regard to listener experience and interaction, as well as potential aesthetic contribution to a variety of musical genres.

Thesis title

Spatial Musicality: A Practice-Led investigation into the application of Spatial Parameters in Music Composition
