I direct the Computational Acoustic Modeling Lab (CAML) at McGill University, where my students and I conduct scientific research in musical acoustics that includes:
Recent acoustic analyses have focused on vocal-tract influence in woodwind instrument performance and fluid-structure interactions in wind instrument systems. See this link for a more detailed research overview.
- measurements and analyses of music instruments and other sounding objects to gain a theoretical understanding of their fundamental acoustic behavior;
- the development of computer-based mathematical models that implement these acoustic principles as accurately as possible and which can subsequently be used to study variations in instrument design;
- the creation of efficient, real-time synthesis algorithms capable of producing convincing instrument sounds;
- the design of appropriate human-computer interfaces for use in controlling and interacting with real-time synthesis models.
