I am a PhD candidate in the Music Cognition Lab, part of the Cognitive Science Research Group at QMUL. My research aims to better understand why we enjoy listening to music, by attempting to predict the occurrence of pleasurable moments in music, using behavioural, physiological, and computational methods. I am particularly interested in the effects of expectancy on chills in music.
I am the recipient of an EPSRC + AHRC studentship provided by the Centre for Doctoral Training in Media and Arts Technology to conduct my research under the supervision of Dr Marcus Pearce and Dr Emmanouil Benetos.
