Helped build 100 hand-held convolver for the 20th anniversary of the Red Bull Music Academy.

2017-06 | Sound Field Analysis Toolbox
2017-06 | Sound Field Analysis Toolbox

The sound_field_analysis toolbox is a Python port of the SOFiA toolbox for Matlab. It allows you to analyze, visualize and process sound field data recorded by spherical microphone arrays.

2016-02 | Beamforming for Transaural Audio
2016-02 | Beamforming for Transaural Audio

A mixed, array-based speaker system, where traditional LSFI beamforming and path estimation are simultaneously employed in their respective comfortable frequency range.

2016-01 | Polygon Waveform Synthesis
2016-01 | Polygon Waveform Synthesis

A method of generating musical waveforms which relies on sampling a variable polygon in polar space with a rotating phasor.

2015-11 | SHFT
2015-11 | SHFT

Interactive AV installation for ZHDK's Immersive Lab installation, featuring 360 deg projection, multi-user interaction and 16 channel spatialisation.

2015-08 | HapticWave
2015-08 | HapticWave

Designed and tested the hard/software of a prototype that delivers directional haptic cues to your hand to augment VR.

2014-05 | Coloration in Wave Field Synthesis
2014-05 | Coloration in Wave Field Synthesis

Investigated the perceived coloration of a synthesized point source presented by stereophony and Wave Field Synthesis using between 14 and 3584 speakers.
