I direct the Computational Acoustic Modeling Lab (CAML) at McGill University, where my students and I conduct scientific research in musical acoustics that includes:
A list of publications is maintained on the CAML website, as well as an overview of research projects in the lab.
- 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.
I also founded the Musical Acoustics Research Library while at Stanford and subsequently helped negotiate an agreement with the Stanford Libraries to digitize and make available the library contents online.
