Eloysa Zelada is a media artist, pianist, and composer currently pursuing a Ph.D. in the Performing Arts Technology Department at the University of Michigan. With a Master’s degree in Media Arts from the same institution and a Bachelor’s degree in Piano Performance from Mannes School of Music, her academic journey reflects a deep-rooted commitment to artistic exploration and interdisciplinary study. Her research spans diverse areas, including data sonification techniques, immersive media, electronic music, sound design, and interactive installations.
