I’m an expert in eighteenth-century music, the history of music theory, Enlightenment aesthetics, early modern science, and theories of the affects and the passions. My journal articles have appeared in Critical Inquiry, Music Theory Spectrum, Eighteenth-Century Music, and the Journal of Music Theory. My first book, Beating Time and Measuring Music in the Early Modern Era, was published in the Oxford Studies in Music Theory series at Oxford University Press (2014) and won the Emerging Scholar Award from the Society for Music Theory. I am a former junior fellow of the University of Michigan Society of Fellows, and I earned my PhD in music from the University of Pennsylvania.

In addition to my academic work, I have also collaborated on the creation of new and newly-imagined operas. Most recently I collaborated on an installation of The Magic Flute with Jonathan Berger, Susanne Sachsse, Vaginal Davis, and Jamie Stewart at NYU’s 80WSE gallery. Holland Cotter of The New York Times listed the piece among the “Best in Art of 2015.”
In 2014 I assisted in Bruce LaBruce’s film of Pierrot Lunaire, which won a Teddy Award at the Berlinale film festival.
