The project you will work in is part of the EU MSCA Doctoral Network “Lullabyte” on the effects of music and sound on sleep. The network consists of 10 collaborating institutions combining the expertise of music research, psychology, neuroscience, and computer science.
Based on our research on sonic interaction design and sonification, we will develop novel sonic applications that promote healthy sleeping behaviors.
Your task will be to identify the acoustic features involved in promoting sleep; to ascertain whether they have a similar role in different sound signals (e.g. environmental sounds v.s. instrumental music); and to apply this knowledge to develop personalized interactive sonic applications for healthy sleep.
This project includes secondments with Miriam Akkermann (TU Dresden, Germany) to examine role of music, voice and sound in relation to sleep, and Thomas Andrillon (Brain Institute Paris, France) to deepen our understanding of sleep data.
Your work will take place at the Division of Media Technology and Interaction design (MID).
Third-cycle subject: Media Technology
Supervision: Associate Professor Sandra Pauletto
