I am involved in a range of research projects, mostly involving mobile technology as applied to the field of physical activity.
I maintain my interests in Music Psychology and Music Education through my positions as Assistant Editor of the journal Psychology of Music and as Associate Editor of the journal Music, Technology and Education.
My research explores the use of technology and music within physical activity and exercise, including:
- sensorimotor synchronisation with music, in particular synchronising walking cadence (in collaboration with Perception and Action lab)
- the use of mobile music to promote increased intensity and duration of physical activity
- the use of ubiquitous mobile devices for activity monitoring, in particular the use of mobile accelerometry
- design of user interfaces for mobile applications in physical activity (in collaboration with Mobiquitous Lab)
- the use of mobile devices and web technologies in large-scale physical activity interventions
