My field of research is psychoacoustics: the perception of sound. Here I am particularly interested in the perceptive effects of both ultrasonic and infrasonic sound on the human nervous system and brain, primarily with the aim of developing therapeutic methodologies. I have a strong background in digital signal processing coding and have developed sophisticated watermarking techniques for embedding metadata into high resolution audio formats, for both copyright purposes and digital transmission. I am also extremely interested in acoustic environment modelling, machine learning and deep neural networks.

I have a multidisciplinary research background covering a variety of fields including genetics, pathology, microbiology, virology and bioinformatics.
