As part of my Ph.D research, I have developed the luminance-texture-mass (LTM) framework for timbral semantics. I then worked as a research associate at the computational creativity project COINVENT that was funded by the European Commission. My responsibilities were to empirically evaluate the CHAMELEON melodic harmonisation assistant that was developed as part of the project. I have also been supported by the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (IKY) with a two-year post-doctoral grant to investigate the complex interaction between musical timbre and other musical parameters (e.g., harmony, melody, rhythm) towards inducing musical tension.
I have recently founded Soundpear whose mission is to enrich gustatory and olfactory experiences through sound and music pairing.
