Introduction
I am interested in the ways in which various physiological and behavioural sensors (e.g. ECG, motion detection) can be used to understand and enhance non-verbal interactions between performing musicians. My research draws upon techniques and concepts from the fields of affective computing, social signal processing, and psychology.

Article
Decreasing our demand for energy is an important component of the global effort to reduce carbon emissions. Energy consumption, both at home and in the workplace, is greatly influenced by human behaviour. Our research investigates how technological interventions could support behaviour-based energy reduction. This paper reports a Living Lab study o...
Conference Paper
Research indicates that new technologies, such as smart meters, can motivate domestic energy savings via behavioural change. Using participatory and co-design methods, our research is exploring how technological innovations might also facilitate behaviour-based energy savings in large organisations. By establishing 'living labs', we are working clo...

Public sector organisations are challenged by the Carbon Reduction Commitment (CRC) to contribute to an 80% reduction of carbon emissions by 2050. Due to the size of these organisations, even changes which are small in percentage terms can lead to significant energy savings. Energy efficiency and energy demand reduction are recognised by the Depart...

This paper describes the LuminUs-a device that we designed in order to explore how new technologies could influence the inter-personal aspects of co-present musical collaborations. The LuminUs uses eye-tracking headsets and small wireless accelerometers to measure the gaze and body motion of each musician. A small light display then provides visual...
Article
Our research considers the role that new technologies could play in supporting emotional and non-verbal interactions between musicians during co-present music making. To gain a better understanding of the underlying affective and communicative processes that occur during such interactions, we carried out an exploratory study where we collected self...

New technologies have led to the design of exciting inter-faces for collaborative music making. However we still have very little understanding of the underlying affective and communicative processes that occur during such interac-tions. We carried out a study where we collected both self-report and continuous behavioural, and physiological measure...

Over the course of the London 2012 Olympics a large public installation took place in Central London. Its premise was to enable mem-bers of the public to express themselves by controlling the lights around the rim of the London Eye. The installation's design and development was undertaken as a collaborative project between an interactive arts studi...
Conference Paper

Affective computing research has tended to focus on the recognition of emotional states in individuals, with the intention of enhancing human-computer interaction. In this paper we advocate the need for a shift of attention towards emotional communication between people. To contextualise our views we discuss the ways in which rapid technological ad...
Conference Paper

When developing public installations, interaction designers are able to utilise increasingly natural modes of expression such as speech, gesture and touch. Conversely the resulting installations often place users in situations where they are confronted with entirely unnatural forms of interaction. How do we establish an understanding of peoples' be...
