Reybrouck, Mark, studied physical education, physical therapy and musicology. He is currently professor of music at the Catholic University of Leuven (Belgium) where he is involved in the teacher training and the course of music psychology. His major research interests are music semiotics and listening strategies with a research agenda that includes both theoretical and empirical work. His theoretical contributions deal with musical epistemology, with a major focus on musical sense-making in real-time listening situations, the related topic of music as experience and the embodied and enactive approach to music cognition. As such he has explored the biological foundations of musical epistemology and the possibilities of biosemiotics and ecological perception and has made major attempts to translate them to the realm of music. Besides this theoretical work he is also involved in empirical research on representational and metarepresentational competence of children in music listening tasks., Belgia
