Previous studies where I have collaborated include the Brain and Art project, led by Dr Francisco Fernández de Miguel at the Institute of Cellular Physiology of the National, Neuroscience Division of the Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and the Tlatelolco Site Museum, in Mexico City. My contribution in this investigation consisted in conducting EEG readings and as a museum steward and designed a prototype to explore the impact of binaural frequencies in visual art observation.
My research and teaching interests focus on psychoacoustics, immersive sound design and digital media interventions for mental health, wellbeing and intersectional social justice. In 2019 I graduated from the MSc in Postproduction with Sound Design and I am currently a PhD candidate at the Department of Theatre, Film, Television and Interactive Media of the University of York. My doctoral research, supervised by Dr Mariana Lopez, explores sound formats in Autonomout Sensory Meridian Response (ASMR) inducing media and their effects in youth wellbeing.
Projects where I am participating as a Research Assistant include an ongoing Delphi Study conducted by the ASMR Research Network and led by Dr Giulia Poerio, with the objective of prioritising an agenda for future
ASMR research; and The impact of immersive technology on ASMR led by Dr. Agnieszka Janik McErlean at Bath Spa University, where I oversee the design of immersive media and sound production and postproduction methodology.
