‘King’s Engineering’, comprised of the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences and the Department of Engineering, welcomes Professor Elaine Chew, a leading academic combining computer science, engineering and music. Professor Chew was most recently a senior researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) in Paris.
Her dual appointment will see her co-teaching topics in data and signal analysis and supervising undergraduate and postgraduate projects in the Department of Engineering within the Faculty of Natural, Mathematical & Engineering Sciences. Professor Chew’s research will be based in the School of Biomedical Engineering & Imaging Sciences, within the Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine.
Professor Chew’s area of research uses computational power to deconstruct expressive piano music, using the Bösendorfer ENPro42, and translates it into a clinical setting for diagnostics and therapeutics mainly for cardiovascular health but has applications beyond.
