My research focuses on the understanding of the relationships between digital technologies and the Self. I unlock new forms of storytelling around concepts of Co-presence, Corporeality, Spatiality and Interactivity with technology, to perceiving and experiencing our mutual belonging. I explore how to escape the power of rationality, as in Dali's paintings, to experience the human condition and the uncanny. I create digital twins linked to their real counterparts, who morph as the music story progresses.
At NOVARS, I built a culture of return-and-collaborate after postgraduates leave. This prevents our collective research to lead to unfulfilled cycles. In 2007, we started with research on Spatial Audio, to embark on new ecosystems focused on Interactive game-audio in 2008, audification in 2009, locative-audio in 2011, analogue synthesis in 2016 and social entrepreneurship in 2018. Do you want to be part of our new chapter?

As a result, I have supervised cross-disciplinary portfolios in musical composition and molecular chemistry, DNA/RNA, state-space physical models, biometrics, visual anthropology and IoT, to mention a few. My dual background in music and economic sciences has clearly paid off to lead PhD journeys to a good port and to identify and seduce the right scientific co-supervisors to become involved.
As an educator, students often give greater value to the fact that I push them to take risks in their artistic practices, and that I do so leading by example. I learn a lot by talking to my students. Especially from those whose creative spirit is generous and who want to change the world for the better.
