I am course director of the undergraduate BA Music and Sound Design course. I also teach Master (MA) level students and supervise doctoral (PhD) students. I am actively involved in developing links with industry, having recently developed 2 apprenticeships in partnership with ScreenSkills UK and UK Music.

I am actively involved in research with a focus on spatial audio (Ambisonics, Dolby Atmos) and live/algorithmic/modular electronic music.

I am involved in research relating to music production, sound design and acoustics. I am engaged in enterprise activities through the ACE-IT project, and the ACI ERDF partnership with Maidstone studios.

I am an experienced sound designer and mixer working in music, film, and audio-visual projects. I have worked on feature films, documentaries and HETV series. Previously, I toured internationally with Aphex Twin producing audio-visual content and bespoke software as part of Weirdcore.

I have extensive experience working on systems design as a consultant on several high profile studio facilities, such as Dean Street Studios' Atmos music mix studio in collaboration with Dolby and PMC. I also led on the design of the studio facilities for the School of Arts and Creative Industries at the university.

I am actively involved in the industry as a member of AES, AMPS and UK Music. I also setup and manage the Avid Learning Partnership for the school.
