I am open to working with students on projects about:
- Everyday music engagement, practices, identity
- Digital listening technologies
- The role of music and arts in promoting health and well-being
- Music/radio, ageing, & well-being
- Facilitating music engagement
- Audience and performer interaction
If you are interested, get in touch with a research question/idea/proposal.
As a supervisor, I aim to assist students by:
- offering advice in your field of study and providing direction for your research/career;
- setting milestones (collaboratively) and monitoring your progress;
- providing feedback, encouragement and support.
