Background

I received my doctorate in 2012 from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland, where I was affiliated with the Finnish Centre of Excellence in Interdisciplinary Music Research. My doctoral research investigated individual differences in music-induced emotions. From 2012 to 2017, I was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Oxford (Faculty of Music), working together with Prof. Eric Clarke (Faculty of Music) and Prof. Charles Spence (Department of Experimental Psychology). During my time in Oxford, I carried out two research projects that investigated crossmodal perception in the context of musical performance, and the role of empathy in musical engagement. From 2014 to 2017 I was also involved in a research project based at the University of Jyväskylä (coordinated by Prof. Tuomas Eerola, Durham University) exploring the paradoxical enjoyment of music-induced sadness.
