It was an amazing experience, and quite an honor, to be one of the Keynote speakers at yesterday's Culture Research Symposium on 'The Role of Arts in Well-Being and Social Inclusion', hosted by the Institute of Policy Studies (IPS) and the National Arts Council. I was so happy to see the huge turnout (wonderful to be speaking at live events again, given all of the recent restrictions on in-person meetings!).
I am honored to be an invited speaker for the lecture series hosted by the National Intrepid Center of Excellence in Washington, DC, next month. I will be talking about 'Music, Technology, and Health', and how we can leverage this exciting intersection of disciplines to forge a new (musical) frontier in healthcare. Attendance is free and open to the public!
I'm honoured to announce that I've recently joined one of the premier science and research organisations in Asia - A*STAR! I'm working to set up a new research group at the Institute of High Performance Computing (Social & Cognitive Computing department) focused on music cognition, exploring such topics as musical memory, computational modelling & AI, and music technology for healthcare.
