Nick is presently finalising his PhD research at University of New South Wales where he worked on the AudioNomad research project.

In 2008 and 2009, he developed and evaluated the SoundDelta project in the Audio and Acoustics group at LIMSI-CNRS, France.

Until 2003, Nick was an engineer and product manager at Lake Technology (now Dolby Labs Sydney), specialising on the Huron digital audio convolution workstation.
