Dr. Edith Van Dyck holds a PhD in Musicology from IPEM and currently works as a postdoctoral researcher at the same institute. Since 2009, she has been focusing on action-perception coupling in musical interaction and published several papers regarding the influence of music features and human emotions on music-induced movement (e.g., dance, running, and walking). From 2013 until 2016, she was also a collaborator in BeatHealth, a project co-funded by the European Union under the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), which aimed at exploiting the link between rhythmical auditory information and movement for boosting motor performance and enhancing health and wellness. In 2017, she organised the 25th Anniversary Conference of the European Society for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM) on the topic The expressive interaction with music and, currently, she is guest editor for a special issue of Musicae Scientiae on the same topic. She assists the course Research seminar: Music interaction and technology in the Master of Art History, Musicology and Theatre Studies.
