The focus of my work is on art as extended practice involving residencies, performances, exhibits and archives. This includes research on ecologies of art practices (artist initiatives/ collectives, art residencies,  sound practice communities).

I am an Associate Professor at the University of the Philippines, handling courses in the Department of Theory, College of Fine Arts and Department of Musicology, College of Music. I am founder and lead curator of art project series Project Glocal (2011-2015) and Composite Noises (2015-2021). I also curated the Jose Maceda Exhibit Series (2013, 2017a, 2017b and  2018). I served as Archivist and Collections Manager of the University of the Philippines Center for Ethnomusicology (2007-2015).
