I am a musicologist: a music researcher. My research aims to understand late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century European music in context — particularly the music of Finnish composer, Jean Sibelius — by creating new theoretical and analytical methods.
I am currently trustee of the Society for Music Analysis, a College Lecturer in Music Theory, Analysis, and History at Magdalen College, University of Oxford, and also an Associate Lecturer at Oxford Brookes University. I have taught analytical and historical undergraduate modules as a Visiting Lecturer at University of Nottingham and as 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).
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’.
