My scholarly expertise in music research includes cognitive and sociocultural constructivism (conceptual change), employability and careers, giftedness and talent, identity and lifelong learning, performance optimisation, musicians’ wellbeing, and theories of emotion and motivation. Currently, I am also focusing on the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the music industry.
I have published several peer-reviewed articles, book chapters and co-edited books, and I also serve as a reviewer and editorial board member for academic journals, conferences, and funding bodies. I frequently hold visiting lectures and present papers in international and domestic conferences. My research has been recognized with significant funding and awards, and I feel privileged to count on extensive academic connections across the globe.
