Biography

I joined the UNMC in 2013, collaborating with the School of Modern Languages and Cultures and the Faculty of Arts as a Research Fellow for the Knowledge Without Borders Network. Within that framework, I tried to establish different links among educational and cultural institutions, with the aim of empowering students and the wider community with Music and Performing Arts experiences in a professional context. As a result, I produced and directed "The Mikado: a COMIC opera", the first pan-UNMC musical production, in collaboration with the Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre, KLPAC. This production contributed to establish an ongoing Music and Performing Arts network on the University campus, which has been consolidated with the opening of the new Drama Studio. My contribution to this area has been acknowledged with my appointment as the UNMC Director of Performing Arts.

Before joining UNMC, I worked as the Associate Course Leader for the International College of Music, ICOM, in Kuala Lumpur, as a Lecturer at the University of Northumbria, UK, and as Curriculum Support and Widening Opportunities Manager for Newcastle Music Service.

Research Summary

My research interests include

Composition, contemporary music, performing arts and new audiences; stage, screen and music technology.

Music Theatre, Zarzuela, opera, operetta; permeability to contemporary practices.

Nationalism and Post-colonialism: post-empire identity and transoceanic cultural commerce.

New Technologies in Education.

World musics; Spanish (including flamenco) and Latin-American folk, South East Asian, North Indian Classical

My current research has a focus on Zarzuela, Spanish Lyric Theatre and Nationalism, through the project 'Zarzuela and post-Empire identity in Spain, Cuba and the Philippines', in collaboration with the UoN Department of Music and the UoN Department of Spanish, Portuguese and Latin American Studies.

I am also currently collaborating with the UNMC School of Politics and International Relations and the UoN SPLAS in the establishment of a transnational Indian Ocean research network.
