Corey Ford

PhD Researcher in AI, HCI and Music at Queen Mary University of London

PhD researcher in Interaction Design, specialising in Human-AI interaction within creative practices such as music composition. Current interests are in designing for reflection, engagement, creativity, and education.

My most recent work has been centred around block-based creativity support tools for music composition — specifically, using these to explore collaborations between people and generative AI systems.
