I’m a musicologist who can’t resist the strange sounds of Early America. My work extends to 17th-century sacred music, 18th-century popular and political songs, Native American music, music in the Atlantic world, and the intellectual history of Early Modern music. More information on my publications and presentations can be found here.
In 2011-2012 I was a dissertation fellow at the University of Pennsylvania McNeil Center. I graduated with a PhD in Music from Harvard in May 2012, and now teach at a school of music in Los Angeles. In my previous life I was a classically-trained violist (trace evidence of my earlier career is still available on the Internet), but these days I am happy to spend more time listening than playing. Before attending Harvard, I received degrees from Oberlin College, Oberlin Conservatory, and the Juilliard School.
