Current Research Interests

My current research interests lie within the modelling and simualtion of musical instruments and effects, with a particular focus on string instruments. As a part of the Acoustics and Audio Group, particular attention is devoted to designing efficient and stable algorithms, for possible implementation in sound synthesis software and music composition.


My other research interests are

-nonlinear vibrations

-plates and shells
