I am a musicologist: a music researcher. My research aims to understand late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century European music — particularly the music of Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius — by creating new theoretical and analytical methods.
In 2019, I was delighted to receive the Society for Music Analysis’s ‘Theory and Analysis Graduate Student’ Prize for my conference paper entitled, ‘Erfüllung in Sibelius’s Työkansan Marssi’. The essay will be published in the forthcoming Society for Music Analysis newsletter.
I am currently a College Lecturer in Music Theory & Analysis at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford. I also teach a variety of historical topics including ‘Women Composers’, ‘Sounding North’, and ‘The String Quartet’. I have taught analytical and historical modules as a Visiting Lecturer at University of Nottingham and Teaching Assistant at Royal Holloway.
After completing my BA in Music at St Hugh’s College, University of Oxford and MA in Musical Composition at University of Bristol, I went on to complete an AHRC-funded PhD in Music History and Analysis at Royal Holloway, University of London (supervised by Professor J.P.E. Harper-Scott).
