My main research interests are in perceptual-motor coordination and skill acquisition, with a specific focus on auditory-motor coordination. My research includes: studying how people synchronise with a beat or walk to rhythmic sounds; investigating how interactive sounds can be used as feedback to enhance learning of motor skills; skill acquisition in music performance, including understanding how sound-movement coupling emerges through musical training, and techniques to enhance musical skill acquisition in the context of music improvisation.
