About

Álvaro Barbosa (Angola 1970) is an Associate Professor and Dean of Creative Industries Faculty at University of Saint Joseph (USJ) in Macau SAR, China. He was the acting director of the Sound and Image Department at the School of Arts from the Portuguese Catholic University (UCP-Porto) until September 2012, co-founding in 2004 the Research Center for Science and Technology of the Arts (CITAR), in 2009 the Creative Business Incubator ARTSpin and in 2011 the Digital Creativity Center (CCD). During this time he also promoted several new innovative curricula such as the PhD Program in Science and Technology of the Arts, the Master Program in Creative Industries Management and the Post-Graduation Degrees in Photography and Digital Design. Holding a PhD degree in Computer Science and Digital Communication from Pompeu Fabra University in Spain and a Graduate Degree in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering from Aveiro University in Portugal, his academic activity is mainly focused on the field of Audio and Music Technology, in which he worked for five years as an Resident Researcher at the Barcelona Music Technology Group (MTG). His recent R&D work, on experimental Network Music and Interactive Sound-Design Systems, was largely fostered in 2010 during a Post-Doctoral Research Position at Stanford University in the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). His creative projects, in collaboration with other artists and researchers, have been extensively performed internationally, with special emphasis in Sound and Music Design, Collaborative Interactive Installations, Live Electronic Music and Computer Animation.
