My background is in Information Systems, in particular, the development of e-learning systems. My PhD concerned the presentation a generative framework for creative learning to be used as a design support tool for e-learning.This was demonstrated through a music composition program called SoundScape.

I worked as an E-Learning Designer on the G-LEARN project which is an e-learning program designed to assist students with decision making in approaching city planning.
