Student Supervision

I am open to working with students on projects in the fields of:
  • Listening practices in everyday life
  • 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.
For more information, check out my advising statement.
