Ideas of space are fundamental to Robert's practice as a composer. He has studied architecture at UCD Dublin and this has influenced the direction of his output in recent years embracing site-specific, outdoor and spatial performances. 

He is currently a PhD student at the Sonic Arts Research Centre, Belfast, drawing from fields such as soundscape ecology, eco-acoustics, field recording and participatory arts. His research is supervised by an interdisciplinary team of Prof. Pedro Rebelo from Sonic Arts and Dr Hansjoerg Kunc from Biological Sciences with a fundamental aim being to link both creative and scientific approaches.

He is a founding member of the Dublin based experimental group Kirkos, and his work has been commissioned by the National Concert Hall Dublin, Irish National Opera, the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), Crash Ensemble and New Music Dublin, Tallaght Community Arts, Alternative Entertainment Arts Group and others.
