My PhD research investigates the expression of moods and the affective effect this mood-expressive music can have on the listener and applying this research to games: the final objective is to create a system where, by using a cognitive model of the player, we would be able to identify the player's emotional state and be able to reinforce or manipulate it through the use of mood-expressive music to improve user experience.

What we hope to achieve is creating better immersive experiences (reinforcement of current emotional state and playstyle) and help the designers create experiences where the players are put in a specific emotional state (manipulation).
