Hello, I am Aidan Taylor. I am a Technician Demonstrator, Lecturer and a Research Assistant between USW and Cardiff Metropolitan Universities and I do freelance learning/experiential activities like workshops outside of these jobs as well. I am also a musician and you can find a little bit more about my music here.
My creative and professional work is largely based around electronics, I am self taught as an engineer (ok I am more of a hacker!) and have more of an educational background in the arts, but I found a healthy love for electronics as a student and got into analogue synthesizer design shortly after my studies. I worked for a period at Modal Electronics ltd. as a Hardware Development Engineer, and worked on and with a number of their world reknown synthesizers, but more recently moved back into an academic environment. I currently am working as a Research Assistant on a project called LAUGH that is developing technology to improve the lives of people living with late dementia.
This site is designed to be a hub for my academic work and interest, and as such you will find a range of things here from my own experiments to tutorials and learning resources for students, to various articles and interesting items I come across on the web.
You can use the contact section of this site to get in touch, and every page and blog article has an active comments section so you can engage in discussion.
