BioI am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University, where I lead undergraduate courses in music and the humanities. At Stanford, I am also affiliated with the Woods Institute for the Environment.
I previously taught at the San Francisco Conservatory and the University of California, Berkeley, where I completed my Ph.D. in Music History and Literature in 2018. Before coming to Berkeley, I earned an M.Phil. in Music from the University of Cambridge (2012) and A.B. in Music from the University of Chicago (2011).
My work demonstrates how cultural and material histories of climate and the environment shaped music, sound, and media cultures and their politics in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with special attention to Germany and to global historiographies. My teaching and research investments more broadly encompass opera and theater studies; sound studies; media studies, especially media history and theory; the history, culture, and politics of climate, climate change, and the Anthropocene; posthumanism and new materialism; philosophies of technology; discourses of race, ethnicity, and alterity, including postcolonial and subaltern studies; and the history of ethics. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in journals including European Romantic Review, The Cambridge Opera Journal, and The Opera Quarterly.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWestern Interconnection Data Analytics Project (WIDAP):
Austin uses various data analytics to analyze emissions data from the western interconnection. Recent findings suggest many coal and gas plants are no longer operating in the baseload generation paradigm for which they were designed. Austin is investigating how emissions are changing as a result, and how the thermal characteristics of power plants and policy environments affect different locales within the western interconnection.
