Deep Listening workshops: 



I have a PhD in Music, Innovation and Technology (2007), and a Deep Listening® Certificate for Teaching (2012). I have received the prestigious postdoctoral awards: The Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellowship 2007-2009 (IOCT Institute-DMU), and the Marie Sklodowska Curie Individual Fellowship 2017-2019 (RITMO Centre-UiO).


From 2007 to 2009 I worked as Research Fellow in the Institute of Creative Technologies - IOCT, at DMU, and developed the online environment Sounding Underground. In the IOCT, I acted as a Programme Leader for the MA/MSc in Creative Technologies in 2010 and 2013.


From 2011 to 2017 I worked as Research Fellow at CRiSAP - Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice, at the University of the Arts London, and developed Networked Migrations, Sound Matters Framework, and Listening to Curricula research projects.


From 2015 to 2017, I taught the online certification course in Deep Listening awarded by the Centre of Deep Listening (RPI).

From 2017 to 2019 and thanks to the Marie Sklodowska Curie Fellowship I trained in Embodied Music Cognition methods, at RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion, Department of Musicology, at the University of Oslo. There, I developed INTIMAL: Interfaces for Relational Listening. Body, Memory, Migration and Telematics.


After the fellowship, I continue the development of this wide and rich project which is structured in: conceptual, art/technology, and community developments.
