Anthony Lewis Brooks

Associate Professor Anthony Lewis (aka Tony) Brooks PhD was born in Wales, UK. His doctoral dissertation reported the evolution of his body of research titled SoundScapes that resulted in a family of international patents, product, and a spin out company. SoundScapes was the catalyst of national and European funded projects. The Danish project (1997-2002) investigated potentials of SoundScapes’ gesture-control of video games and creative expression as an alternative therapeutic intervention to supplement traditional approaches for treating acquired brain injury patients (stroke). The European projects (2000 – 2002) were funded respectively by The European Network for Intelligent Information Interfaces (i3net.org) and the European Commission (Directorate General Information Society and Media). The latter, where Brooks led the Swedish consortia, was a coordinated project under the FP5 call “Elderly and Persons with Disability”. Upon cessation of these projects , in 2002, he was headhunted to be a leading member of the team that originated the Medialogy education at Aalborg University where he has since been coordinator, study board member, lecturer, international representative, and is now Director of the SensoramaLab.
