  • I secured a 2-year research grant (EUR 169,000) through the Lise-Meitner Programme of the Austrian Research Fund to investigate crossmodal correspondences between timbral qualities of sounds and perceptual dimensions of other sensory modalities. The project will be held at the Institute of Musicology of the University of Vienna in collaboration with Univ.-Prof. Dr. Christoph Reuter from Summer/Fall 2019. 
  • Since February 2019, while continuing my collaboration with the Audio Communication Group at TU Berlin, I have joined the Chair of Acoustic and Haptic Engineering (Prof. Dr.-Ing. habil. Ercan Altinsoy) at the Institute of Acoustics and Speech Communication of TU Dresden as Research Associate (Postdoc) to work on musical haptics and audio-haptic interactions in music instrument quality perception.  
  • I have been selected as Young Invited Lecturer to give a poster presentation in the International Symposium on Universal Acoustical Communication 2018 [4] and an invited lecture on auditory semantics and crossmodal correspondences in the satellite Seminar on Brain, Hearing and Speech Sciences for Universal Speech Communication.
  • New paper "Multimodal classification of stressful environments in visually impaired mobility using EEG and peripheral biosignals [5]" published in the IEEE Transactions on Affective Computing. 
  • I will give oral presentations of new work on the perception of timbral brightness (with Kai Siedenburg, Universität Oldenburg) and on crossmodal correspondences between timbre and color (with Christoph Reuter, Universität Wien) in the conference Timbre is a Many-Splendored Thing [6] (4–7 July 2018) and the annual Meeting of the German Society for Music Psychology [7] (7–9 September 2018).
  • During the summer semester 2018 I will offer a graduate seminar on Audio Content Analysis for Timbre and Musical Dynamics [8].
  • A Springer Handbook of Auditory Research volume on timbre edited by Kai Siedenburg (Universität Oldenburg), myself, and Stephen McAdams (McGill University) is due to appear in late 2018.
  • New paper "Cognitive load assessment from EEG and peripheral biosignals for the design of visually impaired mobility aids [9]" published in Wireless Communications and Mobile Computing.
  • A Springer book on "Musical Haptics" [10] edited by Stefano Papetti (Institute for Computer Music and Sound Technology, Zürcher Hochschule der Künste) and myself is due to appear in early 2018. 
  • A revised version of my first peer-reviewed publication "Fractal Art: Closer to Heaven? Modern Mathematics, the art of Nature and the nature of Art" has been published as part of the anthology "Towards an Interdisciplinary Aesthetics of Mathematical Art" [11] edited by Kristóf Fenyvesi and Tuuli Lähdesmäki (Springer-Birkhäuser 2017).
  • New paper "Perceptual evaluation of violins: a psycholinguistic analysis of preference verbal descriptions by experienced musicians [12]" published in the Journal of the Acoustical Society of America. 
  • During the summer semester 2017 I will teach a graduate seminar on The Perception of Timbre [13]. This seminar will offer a critical discussion of acoustical, perceptual, and cognitive perspectives on timbre and its role in how we recognize, identify, and categorize sounds.
  • On 12 & 13 January 2017 the Berlin Interdisciplinary Workshop on Timbre [14] was successfully held at the Berlin Musical Instrument Museum. Videos of the keynotes and invited contributions are available on the website of the workshop (videos can be accessed by clicking on the camera icon next to individual talk titles) and the Audio Communication Group YouTube channel [15].
