Founding Members

SPARC was established in 2010 by Stephanie Pitts and Chris Spencer and their jointly supervised PhD students, Melissa Dobson and Kate Gee, shortly after Melissa and Kate graduated from the Music and Psychology departments of the University of Sheffield.  We worked jointly on a knowledge exchange project with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, before Melissa and Kate left Sheffield for other academic roles.
