My early research was in molecular cell biology, and since 1989 I have also been involved in musicology, particularly with reference to improvisation. Since 2007 my research focus has turned to music cognition, and music computation (both analytic and generative). I also have extensive experience as an institution-builder, being a CEO for 18 years, first of the Heart Research Institute, Sydney (an autonomous body of which I was foundation director), and then of the University of Canberra, of which I was Vice-Chancellor and President. I founded the creative ensemble LYSIS in the UK, and it continues as austraLYSIS here in Australia. Our work is concerned with the creation of sound, text and intermedia work, and it operates internationally. My brief biography is available on Wikipedia, and see austraLYSIS for fuller information about my creative work. ; Education: DLitt Brunel University England; DSc Brunel University England; MA University of Cambridge (UK); BA University of Cambridge (UK); PhD University of Cambridge (UK) ; {}
