Biography

I'm what you might call a mathematical musician (or, if you prefer, a musical mathematician...) who is interested in a wide range of stuff including jazz organ; etymology; mountain biking; Radio 4; cinema and theatre; Chai tea, and P. G. Wodehouse. I'd love to be able to improvise music more confidently, I'd like to be a bit less pernickety and retentive, and I really wish that I could speak French and German an awful lot better than I do, but I'm working on all of those.

I try to keep that range of interests tied in with my professional activities wherever possible, and have found ways of combining my love of jazz and early music with my research work and commercial activity. I have even managed to work Bertie Wooster and the Empress of Blandings into my teaching. If you can think of any means by which I can legitimately drink more tea professionally, I'd love to hear from you.

Since 1999, I have been responsible for the planning, delivery and assessment of music and audio content, and manage the delivery of a range of sound- and music-themed module content on a number of programmes. My main subject specialisms are in sound production and music performance, although I have developed content around mathematics, coding theory and data encryption and pedagogy, with a particular focus on enactive learning and music education.

Most of my energy is directed towards the Sound and Music for Games degree programmes, where I cover all aspects of sound and music for the media: everything from radio drama through sound synthesis to sound effects for the moving image. I have also delivered some classes on applied abstract algebra, examining the mathematics behind data encryption and error correction codes for Computer Games Technology, and run workshops and masterclasses across the School's portfolio of programmes.

I have considerable experience of designing, implementing and managing collaborative provision and articulation, and have established several international programmes, including collaborations with the University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Dortmund; the Institut Polytechnique de Grenoble, and DePaul University, Chicago.

I'm regularly involved in undergraduate and postgraduate project supervision, and have supervisory experience up to PhD level.
