Professor of Sonic Culture since 2014, I joined the university in 1997, where I currently act as Deputy Chair of its Professoriate and as Co-Director of the Creative Technologies Research Centre (CTRC). My research publications address electronic dance music culture in addition to other forms of electronic music, including game music, while my postgraduate research students engage with issues in digital media, music cultures and sound design.

The Creative Technologies Research Centre (CTRC) is co-directed with Prof Lizzie Jackson to advance research and enterprise in the areas of film, digital production, video games, sound and music.

Previously, as Chair of Sonic Research Group (SRG), I brought together academic staff and postgraduate research students to engage in the concepts, cultures, creative practices and technologies of sound and music, and to nurture research in this field across the spectrum of academic engagement.

In addition to my publication work, I have co-edited a range of collections and special issues on DJ and club culture ("DJ Culture in the Mix", Bloomsbury Academic), game music (for the journal "G|A|M|E"), dub techno (for the journal "Dancecult"), music performance and transnational music cultures (for "IASPM Journal").

Between 2011-17, I led the editorial team of "IASPM Journal", the open-access online journal of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM). I am also member of the International Advisory Board of "Dancecult: Journal of Electronic Dance Music", and member of the Advisory Board of "IASPM Journal".

I regularly peer review in the fields of sound and music studies for a range of academic journals and publishers (including Routledge, Bloomsbury Academic, Edinburgh UP, Temple UP, Emerald), and between 2007-14 I was member of the review council for the AHRC. I also advise externally on postgraduate research, course (re)validations, and academic staff recruitment.

Importantly, in 2004 I initiated successful course provision in music and sound design at London South Bank University, to which I still contribute significantly. I passionately care about research-led teaching, and am Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Association. My graduates and postgraduate researchers successfully go on to gain careers in the creative industries, including music production, music performance, sound art, music copyright management, music marketing, music management, music technology, game development, as well as follow academic careers in digital technologies, industries, and humanities.
