Biography

I am a Senior Lecturer in music production and sound engineering and the Course Leader of the Sound Engineering and Music Production course. I joined the UOH in 2004 as a lecturer and admission tutor before becoming a course leader in 2007. I have experience teaching modules that cover sound engineering, recording, mixing, computer composition, synthesis, sound to picture and film music composition. I have supervised many final year undergraduate research projects that investigated areas such as recording techniques, perceptual listening tests, the effects of dynamic range compression in music production, distortion as a production process, timbre studies with a focus on production processes and semantic audio. Before joining the University of Huddersfield, I worked at Manchester College of Arts and Technology (now merged into Manchester College) as a music technology lecturer.

I have a PhD in music production and technology, which investigated the use of non-linearity in music production with a focus on dynamic range compression and the 1176 compressor. My research interests include music production sonic signatures, non-linearity and distortion in music production, the perceptual effects of dynamic range compression and semantic audio

I also have significant professional experience as well as my expertise in education. For many years I produced, remixed and engineered various forms of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) at a professional level (started with my first commercial release aged 18) and worked with bands of different genres as a producer and recording engineer.
