Centre for Music and Science

Satinder Gill is a Research Affiliate with the Centre for Music and Science, collaborating with Ian Cross. She investigates rhythm and sense making in communication as a critical lens on the changing nature of presence and tacit engagement in technology mediated communication. Since her PhD in Experimental Psychology (Darwin College) on tacit knowledge in communication, she has worked in Japan (NTT Basic Research Labs), Finland (Centre for Knowledge and Innovation Research, Helsinki) and the USA (CSLI, Stanford). Her research has been motivated by three related concerns, the first being, how do I know that I have been understood and how do I know that I have understood?; the second being on ‘certainty’, on why it is that when we engage with the artificial representation of our decision making processes, we lose our capacity to judge with doubt?; and thirdly, with the rapid pace of change of technology and its uptake, can the arts and sciences together create new methods that bring the ephemeral experience and the representational together to grasp the impacts in society and shape interfaces that afford tacit engagement? Satinder is Managing Editor of the AI & Society Journal and author of Tacit Engagement (2015, Springer).
