He has published numerous articles, book chapters and co-edited three books. His contributions span different areas of music psychology with some emphasis on emotion, health, and wellbeing. His research has been supported by grants from institutions and societies including the German Research Council (DFG), British Academy and Federal Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF). He is member of the Scientific Committee of the Society fur Music in Medicine.
