I graduated with a PhD in Room Acoustics and Psychoacoustics from the University of Salford, UK, where I was funded by the Portuguese Ministry of Science. I worked for a short while as a Research Fellow with a Marie Curie research fellowship at the Danish Technical University before becoming a lecturer at the Universities of Glamorgan and then Huddersfield.
I now lecture in the Acoustics and Audio area at the University of Salford.
My main area of research has been in room acoustics, particularly looking at aspects affecting accurate reproduction and perception of sound in small listening spaces.
I have recently started to develop a research theme around audio production that aims to investigate aspects of automated rating and improvement of sound quality in audio signals and the design of novel creative production environments.
I am part of a multidisciplinary AHRC/EPSRC Science and Heritage research network studying ancient Neolithic monuments with the aim of revealing pre-historic activity in sites of international renown such as Stonehenge. Find out more about this research at here.
I also maintain research links with the Diagnostics Engineering Research Group at the University of Huddersfield in areas of signal processing and sensor technology looking at engine transmission belts, leak detections in turbo-charger systems and localisation and classification of noises inside car cabins.
