Noah Henry is a second-year PhD candidate within the York Music Psychology Group (YMPG), interested in the social and applied psychology of music in everyday life as well as Music Information Retrieval (MIR). His research considers functional and situational influences that determine music selection in daily life. The aim of his current research project is to generate a method by which it is possible to make context-orientated music recommendations through a knowledge-driven research approach.
Noah completed an MA in Music Psychology at York, which included a thesis on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on music listening, before continuing postgraduate study within the research group. Prior to this, he studied for a BA in Creative Musicianship at London's Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP), from which he graduated with First Class Honours.
He is supervised by Dr Hauke Egermann and Dr Liam Maloney.
