Exploring and Expanding the Potentials of Interaction for Enhancement of User Experience
Designing an interdisciplinary course of study in Psychoacoustics and Music Perception at UC Berkeley, I became an R&D team member on two year-long projects exploring sound in virtual space. Following that I pursued research and teaching in ‘the city of music’, at the University of Leipzig, where I lectured three full University courses, including proposed curricula such as “Interdisciplinarity in Musicology” and “Experimental Tonal Practice Working Group”. I was also given the opportunity to be a an invited conference presenter on topics such as “Music and Robotization," “Exploring New Musical Worlds,” and “Parallels in the Trance Music Experience.” [See: Talks]
