Involuntary musical imagery as conditioned by everyday life music listening
Dr Ioanna Filippidi is a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Mapping Music for Wellbeing Sheffield Project. She holds a PhD and MA in Psychology of Music from the University of Sheffield. She is a member of Music Mind Machine, Sheffield and of MANCS Music, Audiences, Neuroscience, Cognition, and Society research centre.
Ioanna's research has been focused on involuntary musical imagery (INMI) in various forms. Her PhD explored the hypothesis that INMI is a conditioned response resulting from everyday music listening. Thereafter she completed a post-doctoral fellowship at the Royal Northern College of Music, in collaboration with The Bridgewater Hall and the Science and Industry Museum in Manchester, researching involuntary musical imagery experiences after live concerts. She is currently a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Sheffield, working with Dr Nicola Pennill and Prof Renee Timmers on mapping music for wellbeing in and around Sheffield.
