The project start date has been set! On December 1 2015, Musical-Moods will start. I will be hosted for two years at University of California Irvine, Dept. of Cognitive Sciences and Dept. of Dance, as a Post-doc in both the departments. I will also maintain my role of Post-doc researcher at the Dept. of Electronic Engineering at University of Rome Tor Vergata, where I will return in the third year of the project.
My role as Scientific Coordinator and Principal Investigator will be supervised by Prof. Lisa Pearl, who is associate professor at the Dept. of Cognitive Sciences, as well as Director of the Computational Language Laboratory, for activities to be carried out within the lab. Prof. John Crawford will act as Project Adviser. Furthermore, I will work together with faculty and graduate students at the Performance Capture Studio at the Dept. of Dance, which will serve as our headquarters at Claire Trevor School of the Arts at UCI.
