I served as a research scientist at SONY Computer Science Laboratory in Paris before moving to the University of Plymouth in 2003 to establish the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR). My research is aimed at understanding how and why people create, perform and listen to music. My research methodology is predominantly based upon computational modelling and creative practice. I believe that music is a highly sophisticated human capacity, which has played an important role in the evolution of human cognition. I am the regional editor for South America of Organised Sound (CUP) and member of the editorial boards of Leonardo Music Journal (MIT Press) and Contemporary Music Review (Routledge). In addition, I am an active composer on my own right. My music has won prizes and have been performed in concerts and festivals worldwide.
