About me


I am Joseph W. Newbold (normally just Joe is fine) and I am an HCI and audio researcher with interests in sonic interaction design, digital health and real-time sensing.

I am currently a research fellow at the UCL Interaction Centre, exploring musical displays to reduce sedentary behaviour for office workers, and a member of the GetaMoveOn fellowship program.

I was previously a PhD candidate at the UCLIC investigating how the implicitly understood and embodied aspects can be used in sonifications for physical activity to directly modify body behaviour. I have a MEng in Electronic Engineering with Music Technology Systems from the University of York. Previously I have worked on a number of research projects at UCL and complete a research internship at Microsoft Research Cambridge.

In my spare time, I am a whitewater kayaker, a sound designer and musician.
