academic life, mainly

This is the sort of thing that I would put out as a CV back around 2010 – not very complete or rigorous given the demands for authoritative self promotion that were well underway by then.  But I could never take any of this seriously and with that attitude my natural laziness comes in to play.

Aside : I once exhibited my CV as an art object – must have been late 80s early 90s – three sizes, Wall Hanging, A4 and wallet size


Anyway, here below is the fullsome text from 2010 or so

Greg has a degree in Cognitive Science from the University of Queensland, graduating with the University Medal in 1995. His PhD was undertaken in the Psychiatry Department of University of Queensland, and investigated the reliability and stability of measures of the human EEG.  During this time he actively collaborated with a number of different researchers on approximately 20 papers.

He was a lecturer in Information Technology and Multimedia at the University of Queensland before taking up a senior lecturing position in Creative Industries at the Queensland University of Technology. In 2006 Greg was a visiting scholar in the Interact Lab of the Department of Informatics at Sussex University, where he investigated the application of ubiquitous computing technologies to school field trips for primary school children, acted as temporary replacement lecturer in HCI for Geraldine Fitzpatrick whilst she was on leave, and gave talks on research and teaching to the Interaction Design group at Sussex.

He has acted as a reviewer for Psychophysiology, the Australian Journal of Psychology, Leonardo, and the Computer Music Journal. He has a decade’s experience reviewing contemporary music, new media and visual art for REALTIME, arguably Australia’s major publication in national and international new media art.

Prior to his degree studies, Greg was involved in the Arts as a composer and visual artist. During this time his compositions were performed on Radio National and ABC-FM, with works also commissioned for theatre and film. In the Visual Arts he was awarded grants from the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council and the South Australian Department of the Arts. In 1988, as part of the Australian Bicentenary celebrations, his visual art work was part of a group exhibition that toured the east coast of Australia for 6 months.

Returning to composition in 2003, Greg is past president of the Australian Forum for Acoustic Ecology. His compositions have recently been performed at SPECTRUM2, Federation Square, Melbourne, at Listening to the Mind Listening, ICAD 2004: Sydney Opera House and “Elektronischer Fruehling” (Electronic Spring): Alte Schmiede, Vienna. His work has been broadcast internationally, most recently for Hungarian National Broadcaster MR3-Bartók Rádió in a live concert by Trio Lignum piece for live and manipulated woodwinds.

In 2007 Greg was awarded an Australia Council grant to undertake an artist residency with the Cognitive Neuroscience laboratory at the Queensland Brain Institute. He delivered an invited talk on this residency at the Brisbane Ideas Festival in 2009. He recently lectured in Human Computing Interaction in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at the University of Queensland and is currently undertaking research on competency based career frameworks in the UQ Faculty of Health.
